The NeilPryde RS:One Windsurfing Class is delighted to be associated with the next event of the action-packed Extreme Sailing Series, renowned for its unique 'stadium racing'  format that delivers all the action close to shore, right in front of the spectators.

The global circuit spanning three continents, brings together the best skippers on the planet, from Olympic medalists to round-the-world record holders, competing against each other in state of the art 40-foot catamarans.

The RS:One Class features a new attractive and dynamic course format making the racing a spectacle for the watching crowds.

Top 10 Olympic athletes including Gold Medalist Faustine Merret and Silver medalist Julien Bontemps will compete on the RS:One alongside Europe's best windsurfers. The event is expected to attract up to 50 entries. RS:One action will take place at the Extreme Sailing Series Race Village on the Promenade des Anglais so the public can see all the racing close to shore.

The winner of each division (Male and Female - Youth, Seniors and Masters) will share the Euro3,000 prize money and will qualify for the 2011 World Final in Melbourne, Australia.
