A spectacular photo gallery of the racing in the Extreme Sailing Series Act 8 in Sydney
After racing was blown over on the first planned day of racing in Sydney, the ten teams in the Extreme Sailing Series have had some action-packed, intense racing. This photo gallery shows some of the action.
The closest battles are between Alinghi, The Wave and Muscat for points that will put them on the podium for the 2014 series.
The tight racing was captured by Mark Lloyd and these photos give a great taste of the action.
