In just two weeks, the Extreme 40 racing machines will line-up on a brand new stadium racecourse in Florian√≥polis, Brazil where they will be joined by Brazilian sailing royalty Lars Grael at the forefront of the invitational entry, Team Brazil. The team representing the home nation brings together some of the country’s top multihull specialists who will complete the starting grid of eight Extreme 40s for the final Act of the year, from the 14-17 November at Act 8, presented by Land Rover.

Team Principal Lars Grael, a multiple Olympic medal winner and 10-times Tornado national champion, will manage the team alongside his 1988 Olympic bronze medal winning crew and Team Brazil skipper and helmsman Cl√≠nio de Freitas. The remaining four crew positions will be chosen after a series of selection trials commencing on the 2 November, where some of Brazil’s finest multihull sailing talent will undertake a rigorous training programme to determine their positions on board.
