We are the official supplier to the Red Bull Extreme Sailing Team, headed by double Olympic champions Roman Hagara and Hans Peter Steinacher, two of the most successful multihull sailors in the world. The team is racing in the Extreme Sailing Series – the most action filled and prestigious sailing tour. Top international teams are part of the series and today it has reached a high professional level for the spectacular multihulls. The cooperation started 2009/2010 and the long term partnership continues 2012/2013.
For Sail Racing, this means possibilities to use the team as a base to develop new technologies, materials and pattern constructions for future innovations. The cooperation with such a strong brand as Red Bull is also an important strategically step for Sail Racing when reaching new international markets.
The Extreme Sailing Series was created with two things in mind, action and adrenaline. A gap was seen in the Grand Prix sailing market for a fast, inshore catamaran, which would be not only exciting to watch but cost effective to run. The circuit will visit nine venues worldwide. A mix of buzzing cosmopolitan cities and spectacular seaside resorts. Bringing the action to the public with Stadium Sailing, putting guests at the heart of the battle and dramatically increasing the pace on the water, the creators of the Extreme Sailing Series have set new standards, both in terms of high level competition and sporting entertainment.
Roman Hagara from the team comments the cooperation with Sail Racing
– It´s great to work with such a strong brand as Sail Racing, they have realized that the
sport of sailing is heading towards a more extreme form that we have never seen before.
They are one step ahead of the competition in terms of function, fitting and quality. Our team, The Red Bull Extreme
Sailing Team, is heading the same way and together with Sail Racing we hope to achieve our goals in future challenges.
