Extreme Sailing - Oman Air maintain lead in Hamburg

Oman Air maintained its lead while Red Bull Sailing Team climbed from bottom of the table to second on the penultimate day of the Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 5, Hamburg.

Four second places and three fifths were enough to keep Oman Air ahead by a comfortable margin while the rest of the fleet took part in a game of snakes and ladders, resulting in a leaderboard reshuffle.

But with only four points separating second and sixth place and a full day of racing ahead, including the final double points race, there is everything still to play for.

Austrian-flagged Red Bull Sailing Team notched up two race wins and a second on a grey day on Hamburg’s River Elbe, and finished tied on points with SAP Extreme Sailing Team.
