Extreme Sailing Series - Realteam gears up for the final Act

At the final Act of the Extreme Sailing Series season, Realteam is gearing up to race due to kick off in Florianopolis in Brasil on Thursday. Originally planned in Rio, the race organisation opted for Florianopolis for safety reasons..

Realteam is lying fifth overall going into the final event, but the podium is still within their grasp – not bad for their first year on the circuit! '2013 has been a year of transition for us,' explained Arnaud Psarofaghis who is taking the helm for the last event. 'We have rotated the crew throughout the season to build the strongest one for next year. I am delighted to be given an opportunity to helm an Extreme 40, this will be my first time although I have helmed other types of multihull for the last three years.'

Realteam finished third overall on the Vulcain Trophy Decision 35 circuit and has been racing at the front of the Extreme Sailing Series professional fleet. A good transitional year, which the team hopes will culminate in a top 4 result at the Extremes. We will find out on the 17 November!
