Extreme Sailing Series 2012 Act 3 takes place in the heart of Istanbul. The eight Extreme 40 catamarans taking part this year are preparing to continue their global tour in less then four weeks time, and heading to the iconic Turkish city with the Extreme 40s for the first time in 2012 is the NeilPryde Racing Series.

The NeilPryde Racing Series is a tour featuring the new, ISAF universal one-design windsurfing class, the RS:One. After its successful debut at a selected number of Extreme Sailing Series events last year, the Racing Series features a dynamic race format providing a real spectacle for the crowds and allowing windsurfers of all levels, ages and genders to compete together on a level playing field.

Having already held the first successful stopover of the 2012 tour in Pattaya, Thailand, the windsurfers will be racing on the Golden Horn Estuary as part of the Extreme Sailing Series Istanbul on the 9th and 10th June. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Blue Mosque and Saint Sophia in the most central part of the old town of Istanbul, the race will further be illuminated by special LED-rigged sails during a night race planned for Saturday evening.

Top Turkish athletes including Enes Ylimazer (PWA Youth World Champion) and Ertugrul Icingir (Turkish RS:X windsurfing Olympic representative in the Sydney, Athens and Beijing Games,) will compete on the RS:One along with other local windsurfers. The action will take place at the Extreme Sailing Series Race Village giving the public a close quarter view of the racing as it plays out close to shore. The winners of each division will share US$3000 in prize money.

As Official Windsurfing Partner to the Series, the NeilPryde Racing Series will visit all the remaining Extreme Sailing Series venues this year including Porto, Cardiff, Nice, Trapani and Brazil.

The official Extreme Sailing Series website has had a mini facelift! Featuring all the regular favourites, check the website regularly for the latest news, videos, images and behind the scenes interviews with the sailors.

As the fleet turns their attention to Act 3 in Istanbul, catch up on all the action from Act 2 Qingdao, which saw things get interesting at the top of the Series leaderboard. The Wave, Muscat overthrew their teammates from the top spot and go into Act 3 in pole position, three points clear Oman Air who are tied on points with Red Bull Sailing Team and Groupe Edmond de Rothschild.
