2012 Jaguar NeilPryde Racing Series Rio NeilPryde Racing Series
The Jaguar NeilPryde Racing Series will return with action taking place in Rio from eighth-9th December. The 'Cidade Maravilhosa' (Marvellous City) will provide a fitting finale for the Jaguar NeilPryde Racing Series in collaboration with the Extreme Sailing Series.

Stadium racing will take place on the eighth and 9th December off Flamengo Beach and under the silhouette of Brazil's most widely recognized landmarks, the Corcovado and Sugarloaf Mountains, providing an iconic backdrop for stadium racing. Adorned with a 38 meters statue of Jesus (known as Cristo Redentor or Christ the Redeemer) on its peak, this globally recognized landmark is also one of the New Seven Wonders of the world and will be watching over the racers in their first South American foray.

The Jaguar NeilPryde Racing Series is a world tour featuring the new, ISAF universal one-design windsurfing class, RS:One. The Racing Series features an attractive and dynamic race format making the racing a spectacle for the watching crowds and allowing windsurfers of all levels, ages and genders to compete together.

The Saturday evening race will be especially spectacular, as the sails will be illuminated with LEDs. Top Brazilian racers will compete on the RS:One sailboards along with other local windsurfers. The action will take place off Flamengo beach at the Extreme Sailing Series village, so the public can view all the racing close to shore. The winners of each division will share the US $3000 prize money.

Come and join us for this great weekend!
