After its first successful stop-over in Pattaya, the NeilPryde Racing Series will go to the heart of Istanbul together with the prestigious Extreme Sailing SeriesTM on the 9th and 10th June.
The windsurfers will be racing on the 9th and 10th June in 2012 off the shores of Ahirkapi, with the fantastic backdrop view over the Blue Mosque and Sainte-Sophie in the most central part of the old town of Istanbul. The race will further be illuminated by special LED-rigged sails during Saturday's night race.
Top Turkish athletes like Enes Ylimazer (PWA Youth World Champion) and Ertugrul Icingir (Turkish RS:X windsurfing Olympic representative) will compete on the RS:One along with other local windsurfers. The action will take place at the Extreme Sailing Series™ Race Village so the public can view all the racing close to shore. The winners of each division will share the US$3000 prize money.
