Sail-World.com : 52 Super Series heads to Palma
52 Super Series heads to Palma

'Audi Azzurra Sailing Team, Quantum Racing and Gladiator in action during day three of regatta at Yatch Club Costa Smeralda - 52 Super Series'    Xaume Olleros/52 Superseries

The 52 Super Series third regatta is being held in Palma, Mallorca next week, from 10th to 14th July. Eight boats will race on equal terms for an historic sailing trophy, The Royal Cup.

Just as there were two boats new to the 52 Super Series circuit in Porto Cervo, Sardinia last month, so the momentum and interest continues to grow as the circuit reaches high summer, and a very popular racing venue, Palma.

And the 52 Super Series owners and organisers are pleased to be continually developing initiatives for the long term future of the circuit. In Palma there will be live fleet tracking complemented by audio commentary from the water.

The Royal Cup, or in full, the Royal Cup Challenge Trophy, was donated in 1995 by King Harald of Norway, Pasquale Landolfi, Willi Illbruck and Yannis Costopoulos to be used as a challenge trophy for IMS50 racing, which then was the world’s premier level rating class.

Among the famous boat and owner names inscribed on the massive trophy are : 1995 and 1996 Brava Q8, P. Landolfi in 1995 and 1996, Mean Machine, P. de Ridder in 1996, in 2000 Innovision 7, H. J. Eekhof and in 2001 Brava Q8, P. Landolfi.

'It seems appropriate and in the line of tradition to connect the cup once again to the best level rating racing. At this point in time this is without a doubt 52 racing.' Comments Rob Weiland, the 52’s Class Manager.

The cup was created by Bvlgari and has been extensively refurbished by Nicolas Joyero, the company of Nicolas Pomar, who with his brother the driving force behind the Breitling Cup. This company has also created the 52 Super Series Trophy which will be unveiled in Palma.

The boats which will be new to the 52 Super Series will be the Austrian boat Aquila which was formerly the 2008 build Mutua Madrilena. It has remained in TP52 measurement trim and will be steered by Rene Mangold.

Provezza is a well known name in global sailing circles and now Turkish owner Ergin Imre brings his 52 which was previously the 2008 Vrolijk designed Desafio and then Cristabella. This boat will be steered by England’s Nick Rogers who won back to back 470 Olympic silver medals at the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games.
