Extreme Sailing Series Act 2 Muscat, highlights


Muscat, Oman welcomed the 11 elite level Extreme 40 teams for the fourth consecutive year, providing a stunning backdrop for Act 2 of the 2014 global Extreme Sailing Series. After 29 races four teams were gunning for the top spot and there was no room for error, with just four points between them -- and 20 points on the table for the taking in the final double points race. The defending champions and home team on The Wave, Muscat made a real statement of intent from the gun, with an aggressive start that saw them lead the fleet of the line, and Leigh McMillan, Sarah Ayton, Pete Greenhalgh, Kinley Fowler and Nasser Al Mashari didn't look back, snatching the win from the hands of the Emirates Team New Zealand, Alinghi and SAP Extreme Sailing Team. Watch the highlights from a hard fought and spectacular Act in Muscat, here.
