The annual worldwide racing series Extreme Sailing Series added two cities for their eleventh season in 2017: Los Cabos, Baja California and San Diego, California.

This will be the first time the series takes place in Mexican territory. Andy Tourell, Event Director of the Extreme Sailing Series, commented on the new venues: “I have no doubt that both San Diego, which has a long sailing tradition, and Los Cabos—which is a great sailing destination in its own right—will quickly establish themselves as among the classic venues on our circuit.”

The event will begin with Act I in Muscat, Oman from March 8 to 11, and will conclude with Act 8 in Los Cabos, Mexico from November 30 to December 3. The event offers the opportunity to boost tourism and position Los Cabos as a world-class destination.
