We are thrilled to announce a return to the Americas for the first time in six years in 2017 in what promises to be another action-packed year with two new venues. Check out the video to find out where we are going. (ExtremeSailingSeries)

The Extreme Sailing Series, the world’s leading Stadium Racing series, will return to the Americas for the first time in six years in 2017 in what promises to be another action-packed season.

After a hugely successful transition to foiling catamarans in 2016 – with the introduction of the super-fast and super-exciting GC32s – the Extreme Sailing Series is now adding two used venues to its roster for its 11th season. Alongside existing host venues of Muscat, Qingdao, Madeira, Hamburg and Cardiff, the Series is now set to visit San Diego in California and Los Cabos in Mexico.

...I am sure the locals in both venues will love the action-packed racing that makes the Extreme Sailing Series unique,” Andy Tourell, Event Director of the Extreme Sailing Series said.

In San Diego the Race Village and all the other elements of the Extreme Sailing Series set-up – including the VIP area and the pontoons – will be based at Harbor Island, and the racing action will take place just five metres from the shore.

...Then, for the first time ever the Series will head to Mexico and Los Cabos for the grand finale of the 2017 season. Located at the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, the venue is known as ‘Land’s End’.

...The addition of new venues comes as the Extreme Sailing Series continues to evolve its racing format with increasing emphasis in 2017 on both the proven Stadium Racing concept combined with larger racecourses that show off the power and speed of the GC32s to best effect.

28 April – 1 May – Qingdao, China
