Leigh McMillan secured victory in the Oman leg of the Extreme Sailing Series.

The Isle Of Wight sailor’s team, The Wave, Muscat, were two points behind SAP after six races, but secured a win in a tense finale to clinch victory.

His team lie second in the overall standings behind Red Bull Sailing Team, with the third Act to be held in Qingdao, China, between April 30 and May 3.

‘We had to dig deep and we knew it would come down the last race,’ said McMillan.
