ROLEX TP52 World Championships

The ROLEX TP52 World Championships return to Cascais, Portugal next week, to a popular venue which almost all the nine teams which are set to compete are hoping will deliver on its worldwide reputation for big winds and Atlantic waves.

While three of the crews have experience of winning the highly coveted title at least once, so close is racing now on the world’s leading grand prix monohull circuit that any one of the teams could rightly lay claim to the 2022 ROLEX TP52 World Championship title.
Doug DeVos’ Quantum Racing team have won on both recent occasions when the TP52 last raced at the Portuguese racing mecca, in 2019 and in 2018 when they were crowned ROLEX TP52 World Champions. And the US flagged team led by Terry Hutchinson come to Portugal fresh from winning the first regatta of the season, sailed last month in Baiona, Galicia.
They might indeed seem to win the world title in alternating years, in 2014, 2016, 2018 (there were no worlds in 2020) and so the sequence favours them, and they have won three out of the four regattas sailed in Cascais in the ten year history of the 52 SUPER SERIES, but as ever Quantum Racing are taking nothing for granted.
But in so saying for a team which is hard wired to be risk averse, knowing that chipping away to achieve strings of top three/top four race results is what wins the season long championship, that is not necessarily a recipe for winning world titles.

The ROLEX TP52 World Championships also count as the second of the five regattas which comprise the 2022 52 SUPER SERIES.
