Sail Racing, – It´s great to work with such a strong brand as Sail Racing, they have realized that the sport of sailing is heading towards a more extreme form that we have never seen before. They are one step ahead of the competition in terms of function, fitting and quality. Our team, The Red Bull Extreme Sailing Team, is heading the same way and together with Sail Racing we hope to achieve our goals in future challenges.
The cooperation started 2009/2010 and the new partnership now covers two years as a start. For Sail Racing, this means possibilities to use the team as a base to develop new technologies, materials and pattern constructions for future innovations. The cooperation is also an important strategically step for Sail Racing when reaching new international markets.
The Extreme Sailing Series was created with two things in mind, action and adrenaline. A gap was seen in the Grand Prix sailing market for a fast, inshore catamaran, which would be not only exciting to watch but cost effective to run.
