Video: Scenes from the Extreme Sailing Series held on Boston Harbor over July 4th weekend. I apologize for the shaky video since some of it was taken on a boat after filming a piece on the debris cleanup of Boston Harbor. (Video music is “Smooth Sailing” by Colie Brice from Mevio’s Music Alley.)
In the end, the “Kiwis” won the Act 4 series held in Boston as Dean Barker’s Emirates Team New Zealand beat out Artemis Racing and American Terry Hutchinson in the final race. Hutchinson was on top of the leaderboard for most of the race days.
The “village” was set up on Fan Pier, although the event was visible from most parts of the inner harbor. This was the first time the series came to Boston and the United States. Organizers estimate crowds of 55,000 over the five days came to view the event.
