The Extreme Sailing Series continues to excite, last week from Trapani, Italy – a former site of an  America’s Cup "Act."  The close-to-shore spectacle gave a crowded public gasp-worthy action as well as the usual super-tight short course racing that’s become a hallmark of the ExSS.  Most noteworthy though (aside from the crash video below) was the consistently solid performance of young pommie gun Paul Campell-James on The Wave Muscat, who took almost no multihull experience at all into this year’s series (he’s a skiff gun), and walks into the final event in Almeria with a lead over some of the best cat sailors of all time.  On a similar note, Team Azzurra match racing star Chicco Bruni took the helm of Sailing Seacily when brother Gabriele broke a bone during the racing, and took a strong fourth on the final race after a nice duel with Campbell-James. "I have always sailed with big, slow boats in the oceans and sailing this is really great, I’ve loved it," said Bruni.
