Trapani, on the west coast of Sicily, is the next stop for the 2011 Extreme Sailing Series. Now in its fifth year, appearing for the second consecutive time in Trapani and for the very first time at several new venues, the Series demonstrates the continued attraction of this exciting sailing formula to both European and Asian venues.
The event will take place in the port of Trapani, the ancient Drepanon and its surroundings represent the western part of a unique, intriguing and varied Sicily. A multicultural place, containing ancient styles and traditions, where history and myth merge to provide an atmospheric setting. A territory decorated by authentic art treasures such as coral, gold and silver, surrounded by the green of the olive groves and vineyards of the countryside and the whiteness of the salt pans, where old mills beat to the sound of the wind. White beaches, crystal clear waters, picturesque seaside resorts, and the peaceful nature of the islands and nature reserves add to the ambience. In addition to the capital, the other important town of the province is Marsala, known especially for its wine tradition.
