The TP52s prepare to fight for the triple crown in Palma

The decisive hours for the 52 SUPER SERIES. The end of the season, which will take place from next Tuesday until Saturday, November 6 at the Real Club Náutico de Palma, seems frenetic because There will be up to three prizes at stake: the victory in the regatta, the Rolex World Championship and the coronation as the winner of the 2021 season of 52 SUPER SERIES. Ten boats will play it all in five days of competition.

The fleet has never been more equal than this season because After two of the three races, the general classification shows five teams with a difference of only four points between them. The leaders, ‘Platoon’ and ‘Quantum Racing’, are tied with 46 points, and the ‘Alegre’, third, and the ‘Sled’, fourth, see them only one point behind because they are tied at 47. The fifth classified, ‘Phoenix’ (again with Tom Slingsby as a tactician), adds 50 points and this opens the range even more and the excitement.

Without leaving aside the ‘Quantum’ (He fights for his fifth title of the season of 52 SUPER SERIES, his fourth World Cup since the circuit exists and Terry Hutchinson is the tactician) who arrives, perhaps, in better shape is the ‘Platoon’. Besides being the Defender of the world title (add two), he won in the last 52 SUPER SERIES regatta that was held less than a month ago in Menorca. “I think that in Puerto Portals we screwed up a lot with the three penalties we had. This showed how long we had not competed, that we were a little rusty to reach the level of this competition. But it is true that in Mahón we changed things in the way of haggling and it went well for us. We want to continue in this line. To win championships you have to go along this line of consistency. The one who makes the fewest mistakes is in the end the one who wins competitions. It is useless to win sleeves if then you do the round of 16 ”, commented the ‘Platoon’ strategist, Jordi Calafat.

Many glances of the sail, if not all, will be directed towards Palma because the TP52 World Cup is a much desired award. Only four teams have managed to win it since it is played together with the 52 SUPER SERIES and the most crowned, with three, is the ‘Quantum’ by Doug DeVos. The rest of the winners have been the Roemmers family and Niklas Zennström with their ‘Azzurra’ and their ‘Rán Racing’, and the defending champion (2019) the ‘Platoon’ of a Harm Müller-Spreer that has already been wound two times after its first in 2017 achieved in Scarlino (Italy). “The World Cup is the championship that we all want to win every season. Winning the World Cup and finishing third at the end of the season makes you happy, “added a Calafat. that he is aware of the difficulties that can be found in the Bay of Palma because while the thermal breezes dominate in summer, in November “it is a lottery”. The wind can blow from any direction and the fleet can find itself in a raging sea, something unusual at other times.
