THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED
Whether you're a seasoned sailor or never sailed but always dreamed of taking to the seas with the pros, you'll love our latest competition as we're offering you the chance to win VIP access for two for one day of this year's Extreme Sailing Series™, worth over £1,000.
The lucky winner and a guest will have the opportunity to ride on board a 'flying' GC32 catamaran alongside world-class sailors, which include Olympians, World Champions and America's Cup stars, at one of three Acts of the 2017 Extreme Sailing Series™ global tour.
You'll choose from one of three events to attend: Act 3, Madeira Islands, Portugal (30 June-2 July), Act 5, Hamburg, Germany (11-13 August) or Act 6, Cardiff, UK (26-28 August).*
No prior sailing experience is required and you can just sit back and enjoy the ride of your life. The winner and their guest will also have access to the VIP shore-side Extreme Club where they will be able to enjoy the hospitality while watching the adrenaline-fuelled racing from the balcony overlooking the racecourse just metres away, as the expert commentary team talk through the racing.
Unlike any other sporting event, where you can only watch, here VIPs can actually sail alongside the best of the best as they muscle their high-performance carbon fibre boats around short courses at speeds of up to 35mph. Jodie Kidd, Ben Fogle and Michael Vaughan are just a few of the celebs who have taken up the spot.
Established in 2007, the Extreme Sailing Series™ is the original Stadium Racing sailing circuit designed for spectators, delivering high-performance action close to shore and putting guests at the heart of the battle. Attracting some of the world's top sailors, racing the hydro-foiling GC32 catamarans on short courses, the global circuit spans the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the Americas.
For those who don't win this amazing prize, there's no need to fret as the public Race Village is free to enter. Find out more at extremesailingseries.com/events/2017.
