Poole sailor heading to Spain this weekend...

POOLE sailor Richard Mason will be competing in Barcelona this coming weekend against a host of international crews with SAP Extreme Sailing Team.

Having emerged triumphant in 2017, SAP Extreme Sailing Team returns for yet another epic on the water battle.

An experienced 470 and F18 sailor, Mason also competed in the 2014 Solitaire du Figaro. Having sailed GC32s before as part of the Monaco based team Malizia, competing in the GC32 Racing Tour in 2016, Mason is no stranger to the super fast foiling catamarans. 2018 will be his second year in the Extreme Sailing Series in which he is sure to make and impact with the Danish flagged team.
