Oman Air comes out top on opening day of Extreme Sailing Series™ finale in Los Cabos



As battle commenced for the final Act of the Extreme Sailing Series™ in Los Cabos, presented by SAP, the protagonists in the fight for the 2017 title dominated the podium. Oman Air was the clear leader, finishing seven points clear in pole position.

SAP Extreme Sailing Team, the current season front-runner, was forced to settle for third behind 2016 champion Alinghi as the Series made its debut in the Mexican venue with perfect foiling conditions.

“It was a really good day,” said Phil Robertson, skipper of Oman Air. “We worked very hard and the boys were really determined, so there was a lot of focus in our eyes. It all fell into place for us with top twos in every race, and that’s exactly where we want to be.

“This is just day one of a long event. We always knew this was going to be the breezy day and an important day. We wanted to make sure we cemented a good spot on the leader board and got some points in the bag and we managed to do that, so it’s satisfying. 

“What happens behind us happens behind us and we’ve only got eyes looking forward,” added the Kiwi skipper.
