Extreme sailing boats racing in Nice, France

Extreme sailing catamaran series sailing photos from the Promenade

Nice, France


This photo gallery showcases sailing photos of Multihull World Series 2011 – Act 7 Nice France. This nautical event draws thousands of spectators to the famous Promenade des Anglais. Extreme Catamarans had to race in light winds and perhaps this was a challenge for the teams, but for the general public watching from the beach, it was great. High-performance Extreme 40 boats were chasing each other very close to the shore. These catamarans are very lightweight and built with carbon fiber. They can reach speeds of up to 35 knots and are specifically designed for coastal close to shore races to promote the sport for the general public.

Nice, France was a perfect location for such a race and for taking great nautical photos. The bay in Nice is called Baie des Anges – Angels Bay and the famous Promenade des Anglais runs along its shores. This venue can easily and comfortably accommodate thousands of spectators. There many cafes and restaurants set up right on the beach, where you can sit back and relax, have lunch, and snack and have a great view of the bay and the race. Catamarans have brightly colored hulls and beautiful sails. It is a pleasure to watch and photograph.

The catamarans are easily assembled, disassembled and shipped in a 40′ container that allows having several racing venues during the course of the year all over the world. For example, in 2014 there are 8 racing events planned from St. Petersburg, Russia to Singapore, and from Cardiff, the UK to Sydney, Australia.
