Mark Bulkeley on Extreme Sailing Series and America's Cup World Series


Jimmy v Russell - AC Discovered video

Mark Bulkeley Extreme Sailing Series America's Cup World Series interview | The Daily Sail: " Bulkeley observes that there are increasing similarities between the Extreme Sailing Series and the America’s Cup World Series in that now there are roughly the same number of boats competing over the same number of days (now that the format for the latter has been shortened), although budgets for the AC45 catamarans (and that circuit in general) remains far higher. Burn rate on the crews is also different between the two circuits. In the latest iteration of the regularly amended ACWS format there are typically two fleet races each day of 25 minutes duration (plus match racing) while the Extreme Sailing Series runs as many as 10 races a day each of 15 minutes, but the work on board the 40s is nowhere near as intense as it is on the 45s."
