Extreme Sailing Series 2011 ninth and final Act is being held off Marina Bay in Singapore from 7th to 11th December. The 2012 Extreme Sailing Series™ global circuit will be announced on Tuesday, 13th December, just two days after the final Act and coinciding with the opening day of the World Yacht Racing Forum in Estoril, Portugal.

The worldwide circuit will once again span several continents as it goes in to its sixth year, with its award-winning ‘stadium racing’ format continuing to bring the sport to the public, entertaining fans in established markets and introducing the sport in countries where professional sailing is very new.

The skipper and crew line-ups for the 10 teams competing at the final Act of the circuit can be revealed today (see full list below). This includes Dean Barker back at the helm of Emirates Team New Zealand who lead the America’s Cup World Series Championship and is lying third overall in the Extreme Sailing Series going into the final event, Alinghi skippered by Tanguy Cariou and helmed by Yann Guichard lying in fourth, fifth placed The Wave, Muscat skippered by Leigh McMillan, Roman Hagara’s Red Bull Extreme Sailing lying in sixth, Oman Air with new skipper Chris Draper at the helm in eighth and the all-British crew led by Ian Williams, recently crowned ISAF World Match Race Tour champion, on Team GAC Pindar in ninth. Two new entries in the form of Stéphane Kandler’s, SOITEC and the first club™, named Team Extreme - the first club™, headed by skipper Sébastien Col, and Team TILT, the Swiss-French squad that will also re-join the fleet after their first participation in Almería, with Swiss multihull lake sailor Alex Schneiter as skipper.

At the top of the 2011 leaderboard, the Italian team of Luna Rossa is leading the Overall Championship, but only one point ahead of the French team Groupe Edmond de Rothschild. 'The Luna Rossa team is really excited about heading to Singapore and the final event of the season,' said Luna Rossa helmsman Paul Campbell-James. 'We're going to have a great battle with Gitana. We're guaranteed a top two result in the overall season results so it’s going to be literally a five-day match race - Italy versus France for the title. Alister [Richardson] and I were in exactly the same position against Gitana this time last year and we're hoping for a similar winning result!' [Note: Paul Campbell-James was skipper of the 2010 overall champions on board The Wave, Muscat beating Groupe Edmond de Rothschild then skippered by Yann Guichard.] Whilst these two teams will fight out for the overall victory, four teams can still claim the third spot on the podium. As ever, its expected to go down to the wire.
