Emirates Team New Zealand is set for action as Day 1 of Act 6 of the Extreme 40 Sailing Series kicks off in Trapani, Italy. ETNZ currently leads the series but going into racing today things are tight at the top of the leader board with Luna Rossa from Italy only one point behind. The relatively new crew line up at Trapani of Skipper/helm: Adam Beashel, tactician: Richard Meacham, trimmer: Jeremy Lomas and bowman Rob Waddell can expect a very light and variable westerly breeze with temperatures above 30 degrees. The Extreme Sailing Series Regattas – short, sharp fleet races in fast catamarans on tight courses – provide valuable experience for ETNZ crew members as part of the transition from a monohull to multihull racing team. Racing will be broadcast live from today (Wednesday) to Sunday (14, 15, 16, 17 & 18 September) at WWW.EXTREMESAILINGSERIES.COM.
