Welcoming the Series as part of its 80th anniversary celebrations, Clube Naval de Cascais will see both the GC32 and Flying Phantom fleets take to the water for four days of foiling action just off the Portuguese coastline.
Miguel Pinto Luz, Vice-President of Cascais Council, commented on the news that Cascais would be hosting the fourth Act of the 2018 Extreme Sailing Series.
“This is yet another excellent announcement for Cascais,” he enthused. “Cascais and sailing go hand in hand – it is part of our DNA and our history. Welcoming the Extreme Sailing Series is very important for our city as we strive to be at the forefront of world class events such as this.”
The Portuguese Act follows the GC32 World Championship in Riva del Garda, Italy, from 24-27 May and Act 3, Barcelona, Spain, from 14-17 June. With fantastic foiling conditions expected, Act 4, Cascais is set to deliver sensational sailing and an edge-of-your-seat experience for fans.
