The Extreme Sailing Series will visit Boston, one of America’s oldest cities, during the most celebrated time of year for Americans, culminating on Independence Day on the 4th July. Boston is rich with cultural and social history, since its incorporation in 1630 Boston has evolved into one of the most stylish and sophisticated destinations in America.
Embraced by the city’s Harborfest June 29th – July 4th and the North Atlantic sea breezes frequenting Boston, this quintessential North American city is the ideal location for the Extreme 40s to race.
The Extreme Sailing Series will be hosted at Fan Pier, situated directly on 21 acres of the most picturesque waterfront property in Boston, providing excellent viewing points for fans and spectators. Fan Pier is surrounded by the internationally acclaimed Institute of Contemporary Art, LOUIS luxury retail, a myriad of parks, Boston’s HarborWalk, and some of the finest new restaurants. Fan Pier is extremely accessible with excellent transport links whether you are arriving by car, train or plane via Logan International Airport.
Spectators can revel in the city’s spectacular 4th July celebrations, which will include fireworks and a concert program, by The Boston Pops Orchestra on The Esplanade. This year the city will celebrate with splendor the 30th anniversary of Boston’s Harborfest celebration!
