THE world’s best sailors will be descending onto Cardiff this weekend to compete in the Extreme Sailing Series.

Competing in the competition will be Olympic and America’s Cup Legend Sir Ben Ainslie.

They will be taking part in the Extreme Sailing Series over the Bank Holiday weekend from August 22 until 25.

You’ll see the fleet of high-performance Extreme 40 catamarans return to Wales for a third consecutive year for a day of intense competition.

The Extreme Sailing Series has captured the imagination of the Welsh public in previous years, drawing thousands to the Race Village on the waterfront of Cardiff Bay to witness the adrenaline-fuelled race action.
