Oman Air take lead at Extreme Sailing Series

Home team Oman Air snatched the overall lead in a second day of intense action at the Extreme Sailing Series in Muscat.

Phil Robertson’s claimed one win and two runner-up spots over the five races held off Muscat’s Almouj Golf.

Danish-flagged crew SAP Extreme Sailing Team looked set to retain their position at the head of the overall standings thanks to two race wins and a second.

But in the final race of the day they got caught in a patch of light wind and had to settle for eighth place, relegating them to third overall, tied on points with Austria’s Red Bull Sailing Team.
