Oman Air settled for the third place in the Extreme Sailing Series Act that finished in the Madeira Islands recently.
The last day saw a lot of changes, twists and turns that are characteristic of this type of extreme sailing competition. The ultimate third place finish acquired by Oman Air was an achievement they managed as they fought fickle winds that have been a persistent feature of Act 3 in Madeira Islands.
The finals saw a committed performance by the team. The double point’s race saw them cross into the second position, ahead of Alinghi and SAP team, but the scoreboard brought their final score to the third position. The start of the competition was strong for the team and there was a Funchal wind that was stable at the end, more so as compared to the kind of wind conditions they faced on previous days. That day saw a single race being held when the Oman Air was not able to add much to their tally. The third position they obtained in Act 3 in the waters of Madeira Islands has matched the results they obtained in the previous two Acts held in Qingdao and Muscat. More Link
