The 2013 Extreme Sailing Series Act 3 is off to a slow start in Qingdao. Light wind conditions and rainy cold weather contributed to lower than expected turnout on Friday May 3rd at the Qingdao International Marina & Olympic Sailing Center.

Saturday's races should pack the house as the sunshine and blue skies return - looking forward to some exciting stadium race action.
