Extreme Sailing Series, Foiling Catamarans, Future of Sailing (videos)

Extreme Sailing Series™ organisers OC Sport have ushered in a new era for the original Stadium Racing global circuit, with the announcement of a new generation of foiling catamarans to be used as part of the event in the future. A panel of the world’s top international sailors and sailing experts gathered at Act 4 of the 2015 global tour in Cardiff, Wales, to discuss the initial concept with OC Sport, and ultimately to have their say on what they want from a new design of boat. Watch the video for a unique insight from OC Sport Executive Chairman Mark Turner, OC Sport Technical Manager Neil Graham, co-creator of the Extreme 40 Mitch Booth and former Extreme Sailing Series champion Chris Draper.

Leigh McMillan is a name synonymous with the Extreme Sailing Series™. The British Olympian is the only skipper to have won the Series twice. But what really makes him tick? Find out in the video above.
