52 SUPER SERIES Valencia
The first 52 SUPER SERIES race of the 2021 season that was to be held in July in Valencia has been canceled. The main reason is that it has not been possible to reach the minimum number of participating boats so that a viable and competitive test could be carried out from Valencia Mar. The problems of the teams to travel and some previous commitments have been the causes of these absences, but What seems clear is that the class is going to return to the water in a big way at the end of August in Puerto Portals with a fleet that can be between 15 and 17 boats.
“We have to thank the management and employees of Valencia Mar who have given us all the facilities in the world so that we could do a magnificent regatta at their facilities. They have made every effort to ensure that our first visit to this port, which is growing so much in services and popularity, was a success. Valencia is one of the favorite destinations of our fleet and this has made the decision to cancel the regatta even more complicated, but we have had no other alternative ”, explains Agustín Zulueta, general manager of 52 SUPER SERIES.
Despite this cancellation, there is great interest among the owners and their teams to return to the race courses as soon as possible. And that seems to happen from August 24 to 28 in the waters of Puerto Portals. The ‘Puerto Portals 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week & TP52 20th Anniversary Invitational’ is held there. This regatta should have been held in 2020 but it was canceled due to the pandemic and it was intended to be done in 2021 in the same scenario in which it was planned before the health crisis. The test celebrates the 20 years of the TP52 class and a good number of boats of the class that have made history and all the sailboats that make up the 52 SUPER SERIES circuit will participate in it. Thus, between 15 and 17 boats are expected in the Portals docks, so the premiere in 2021 of what is considered the best regatta circuit for monohull boats in the world will be in style.
The second regatta of the season will be in Menorca with the collaboration of the Club Marítimo de Mahón from September 28 to October 2. And the end of the year will be from November 2 to 6 with the Rolex TP52 World Championship 2021 from the Real Club Náutico de Palma de Mallorca.
