Extreme Sailing Series - Boston

The Fan Pier a.k.a. water-splashed heart of Boston  hosted the Extreme Sailing Series this weekend adding another piece of excitement to the Independence Day festivities.

11 teams completed 37 races. Quite the scene!  Over 5 days of racing, an estimated 55,000 spectators came out to take it all in.

It was a successful US debut of the Extreme Sailing Series: the Emirates Team New Zealand took the win on the last leg of the final race.  American Terry Hutchinson and his Artemis Racing Team had an 8 point lead going into the last race but couldn't quite fight off the Emirates Team. Congratulations go out to all participants for sailing hard!

Our Boston friend Nick was on the scene. Check out his pics below:
