Extreme Sailing Series Act 5 will take place at Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week with 48 of the world’s very best sailors. Twelve teams and sailors from 15 nationalities will be on the startline in Cowes for the only UK stopover on the 2011 circuit.

The Extreme Village will once again be at Egypt Point. Open from 11am each day, it is the perfect spot to watch all the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week fleet starts before the Extreme 40s kick off in front of the Extreme Village at 3pm each afternoon. In addition, a two story VIP marquee will be in place, designed to give invited guests a panoramic view of the race course as they enjoy the experiential hospitality.

With live commentary, food concessions, including fish and chip specialists CATCH, the Extreme Bar, the Island’s renowned Minghellas ice cream stand and a Marinepool Extreme Sailing Series™ clothing concession, the Extreme Village is the perfect place to enjoy Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week, without missing a moment of the action.

The Extreme Sailing Series™ is the home of ‘Stadium Sailing’ and each afternoon from 3pm the on-water action will kick off in style. Saturday to Tuesday will see the Extreme 40s in action from 3pm right in front of the Extreme Village at Egypt Point. From Wednesday to Friday the Extreme Village will be a great vantage point to come and watch all the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week action and as soon as the last finishers are past Egypt Point, the Extreme 40s will be lining up for their first start.

But there will be plenty to do and see before the main action gets underway. British Championship Windsurfer Guy Cribb has challenged the Extreme 40’s to some head-to-head combat and will be showing the crowds some of his fancy tricks at the weekend. Every afternoon, at 6.15pm there will be a presentation to the top boat of the day : an opportunity to come and meet some of the top international sailing heroes.

BBC Radio 1 DJ and Curator of Bestival, Rob da Bank, will for the third year return to Cowes for a one-night ticket only set to close the Extreme Sailing Series™ on Fireworks Night, Friday 12 August. From 8pm, Rob, a long-time supporter of the circuit and sailing fan, will provide entertainment for the 500 guests.

Rob commented, 'Every year that the Extreme Sailing Series comes to Cowes with their insane stadium sailing it gets me more excited about the possibilities of sailing really bloody fast boats as close as possible to the spectators! I love music and sailing about equally so to be invited to be part of the Extreme Fireworks party is a great honour once more!'

Tickets, priced £12, are on sale now here and are strictly on a first come, first served basis with £1 from every ticket going to official charity Toe in the Water. For further information about Act 5 in Cowes, log on to the Extreme Sailing Series website or follow #exss on Twitter.
