TP52 SUPER SERIES 2014 MIAMI
Volvo Ocean Race The 52 Super Series season will be remembered for all of these reasons. In this coming year we expect the average to go up. We have a big project ahead. Whilst the Key West regatta was a hard fought affair, most skippers and crews agreed that Miami represented a new level for the 52 Super Seris events thanks to the combination of difficult, challenging winds and the strength in depth of the competition. The ideal is to deliver a mix of venues owners and crews enjoy sailing at, embrace even, close, friendly grand prix racing.
So father Doug and son Dalton alternated at different regattas — and actually split the Copa del Rey helming role. Quantum Racingpt.
I have never seen our team so pumped up about winning a regatta, that reflects how hard it was and how well they sailed. They will t5p2 back, reported to be with a new ultra high modulus carbon Hall Spars rig and carbon rigging, so should be quicker than ever. The 52 Super Series is in tip-top health.

They made key crew changes — tough decisions, pre-season. The venues for are spectacular with good winds predicted and fun sites. Points racing at the five regattas may have started in May in Scarlino and concluded in Cascais in October, but preparations started in Valencia in March when teams got together for some informal training.
We are confident that as the TP52 boats are now are one of the few options left which are a full scale test of design and construction of boats, sails and equipment in high level real time competition, we will continue to see the ongoing growth of the TP Yachting races Sailing series. It is the perfect pure performance arena for talented owner drivers and skilled amateur crews to mix with the best professionals. Quantum Racing win the top trophy.
We have a big project ahead. Weiland anticipates one more new build rule 52 to be launched and raced later this summer. A run that saw them add three more regattas and the 52 World Championship to their belt.
Azzurra led until the final day when Quantum Racing won the Copa del Rey with a double bullet final day. At the Cascais Cup in Portugal, Azzurra supfr the season title with a day to spare and Quantum Racing won the regatta.

It was absolutely perfect from the Quantum Racing standpoint. The Box Rule is strict enough to eliminate the need to set handicaps, yet flexible enough to encourage small, yearly innovations.
