The Audi TP52 World Championships 2011 will be sailed on the world renowned waters of Sardinia’s Porto Cervo as the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (YCCS) hosts to the regatta from October 2nd to 8th.

The last time that the TP52 World Championships were hosted on these waters was the 2007 edition, won by Sweden’s Torbjorn Tornqvist 's Artemis. Once again the event is expected to attract a high level of sailors including the defending champions Quantum Racing (USA) who won the title in Valencia last year.

And for the Audi Azzurra Sailing Team, the crew which together won the 2009 world title in Palma ahead of Quantum Racing, will be racing on home waters under the flag of the host club. The racing will comprise five days of windward-leeward racing including one coastal race.

Nacho Postigo, Technical Director of the Audi MedCup Circuit, says 'this year the Worlds will take place at Azzurra's home club and those guys know those waters very well. But I think that we have seen in recent years that the result will stay open till the very end. And the difference with the worlds is that we start from zero, the Audi MedCup will be just finished.

'As Americans say, it will be a 'one shot' week, winner takes the title. In my opinion anything’s possible'.
