Flying Phantom Series set for take-off in 2018

Following a highly successful first year, the Flying Phantom Series is set to lift-off alongside the Extreme Sailing Series™ once again in 2018, providing even more high-speed racing for fans around the world.

A fleet of up to 11 Flying Phantoms are expected to take part, and fans can expect some full-on racing from the top international sailors as this fleet adds to the on-water action at four of the Extreme Sailing Series Acts. Watch the Flying Phantoms in action in 2017 here.

Weighing just 165kgs and crewed by two people, the Phantoms are smaller and lighter than the GC32s that race in the Extreme Sailing Series. But the power of these carbon-fibre multihulls should not be underestimated - they can reach breathtaking speeds of over 30 knots when charging along on their hydrofoils. 

Software giant SAP extends Extreme Sailing Series sponsorship until 2022
OC Sport, owner and organiser of the Extreme Sailing Series, is thrilled to announce an extension of their technology sponsorship with German software giant SAP, for a further four years. The renewal of the sponsorship will see the partnership reach a decade, as together the Series and SAP continue to push the boundaries to transform the sport of sailing for fans, media and sailors. Read the full story here.
