The seventh round of Extreme Sailing Series has started in the French city of Nice. The races will continue until 5 October 2014. You can follow the progress of the competition on the website of the regatta.
The previous round of the series was held less than a month ago - Team New Zealand won the race off the coast of Turkey. The Russians from Gazprom Team Russia finished 11th.
The Alinghi crew is currently leading in the overall standings. The competitors have only two attempts to change the situation - now in Nice and in December at the final stage to be held offshore Australia.
As a reminder, one of the stages of the competition was held this year in St. Petersburg. The best sportsmen competing on 40-foot catamarans came to the Neva shore.
