52 Super Series : champions are looking to achieve lift off with new Platoon Aviation

The reigning 52 SUPER SERIES champions, Harm Müller-Spreer’s German flagged crew, start their title defence on Sunday on Majorca’s Bay of Palma by getting to know as quickly as possible the fine details of what could make their brand new boat, Platoon Aviation, another winner.  

Their new TP52, a hull sistership to the Botin designed Alegre, was only launched at the start of this month and the crew so far have had just one week of trials and training – on their own out of Valencia – before a final few days this week lining up against the mustering fleet of TP52s which are set to start racing on Sunday when 52 SUPER SERIES Palma Vela Sailing Week starts the five regatta season which next takes the fleet to Newport Rhode Island for two events in June and July.

Whilst they are all relishing the task ahead of them and loving the prospect of unfolding the expected step up in performance which should fill in any perceived weaknesses of their previous Platoon, neither the icy cool owner-driver Harm Müller-Spreer nor the tightly knit, international team are particularly phased by the lack of time they have had with their shiny new machine, one  which has an equally distinctive but subtler livery to the 2018 launched Vrolijk designed Platoon.
