Following a very successful 2022 season, celebrating 10 years since the world's leading grand prix monohull circuit started in Barcelona in 2012, the 52 Super Series again follows the preferences of its passionate, committed owners in 2023 with an itinerary which is a mix of popular proven locations which offer a good variety of racing conditions plus one exciting new venue which, though well known, has never hosted the 52 Super Series before.

So the 2023 season will open in Saint Tropez in very early May with the 52 Super Series fleet set to compete in France for the first time. For the first time It will be a 'home' regatta for the Petithugeunins' Paprec team which have raced on the circuit since 2012. After a short hiatus they rejoined the action in October this year at the 52 Super Series Barcelona Sailing Week with a newer generation boat.

The second regatta of the five scheduled for 2023 starts late May and marks are return to Scarlino in Tuscany, Italy for the fourth time. In 2017 the race area proved a very engaging challenge with a suitably diverse range of wind conditions to test the fleet to crown the 2017 Rolex TP52 World Champion team. And more recently after fantastic racing there this year the crews are keen to return.

Over the first week in July the 52 Super Series returns to Menorca where the open race course area is always regarded as a challenge by the team afterguards whilst ashore in the beautiful, historic city a warm welcome awaits. The fleet will compete for the Royal Cup here.

August is going to be all about Barcelona and the Rolex TP52 World Championships where the vibrant America's Cup city will be in full swing and the Garbi sea breeze is usually quite reliable.

And the demanding schedule - one event every month - concludes in Mallorca in September when Puerto Portals hosts the season's grand finale on the Bay of Palma.

The 2022 season finished with ten TP52s racing in Barcelona and current indications are that should be the baseline fleet size in 2023.
