Extreme Sailing Series Sydney 2015

(Note: this was posted in February but backdated to December).

In mid-December Sydney hosted the final act of the 2015 Extreme Sailing Series. I went down by myself for a few hours on the Saturday afternoon and then returned for the entire afternoon of the Sunday with friends. My friends had never seen yacht racing before and really enjoyed it, it was fun trying to explain all the technical terms of yacht racing to them that I had learnt as a child watching the Americas’s Cup Coverage on TV.

Below are a few photos of the racing near Farm Cove in Sydney Harbour.

In early December I went to all three days of the finale round of the V8 Supercars Championship at Sydney Olympic Park.

I was very fortunate to have won a competition for a hot lap in a V8 Supercar on the Friday afternoon. I was not told of which team or car I would have the ride in until a few minutes before the lap. The car I was assigned was the Erebus Mercedes Benz E63 AMG V8 Supercar. I’ve been lucky enough to have ridden in race cars before so I knew what to expect when the car was braking for a corner. However, what I had yet to experience was the sheer power that the V8 Supercar has while accelerating, it was far more powerful than any rollercoaster or ride I’ve been on before.

There are a few photos from the three days of racing below.
