Extreme Sailing Series - All down to final day

Alinghi extended their lead in the standings at the Extreme Sailing Series Act 8, Los Cabos to lead by ten points from Oman Air.

Despite suffering a seventh-place finish, Oman Air remains in second: four points clear of SAP Extreme Sailing Team and within reach of leader Alinghi.

Crucially SAP Extreme Sailing Team retained the podium position that is the key to taking the overall 2017 victory when the season draws to a close Sunday.

Unfazed by Alinghi’s two-day winning streak, SAP Extreme Sailing Team helm Adam Minoprio remains confident that his team can still win the Act, as well as the 2017 season.

There are potentially six more races Sunday and double-points in the last race, so it is still all to play for, for winning this event.
