Extreme Sailing - Double win for Oman Air in Hamburg

In tough conditions on the River Elbe, Oman Air out-sailed its rivals to gain a six-point lead after day 1 of racing at the Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 5, Hamburg, presented by Land Rover.

Light and patchy winds, combined with a strong tide in Hamburg, meant just two races were completed and three abandoned and Phil Robertson’s Oman Air, who won in Hamburg last season, were victorious in both.

The two younger squads, Land Rover BAR Academy and NZ Extreme Sailing Team, took a third and a fifth each to finish tied on points.

The British squad occupy second place by virtue of finishing ahead of the Kiwis in the last race.
