World renowned regatta comes to Zadar!
The TP52 class is known as the Formula 1 of sailing, and the SUPER SERIES regatta is the world’s best monohulled sailboat race. The importance of this competition is highlighted by the fact that races are usually held in some of the most exclusive destinations in the world, such as Miami, Key West, Porto Cervo, Menorca and Scarlino. Teams can design build and campaign their own boat to their own ideas, as long as it fits to the “horsepower” and build rules.
Starting on 23rd May 2018, up to thirteen teams from nine different countries will battle it out over a series of five week-long regattas between May and September this year.
Each of the five regattas consists of around ten races, with a mixture of windward-leeward and coastal courses depending on the venue. Over the course of the season all results stand – there are no discards – and typically that means around 45 to 50 races in the season. Lowest score wins.
Croatia is selected as the host of two TP52 SUPER SERIES races, one of the most prestigious regattas in the world. The host of the race, which is set to take place from 20 to 24 June 2018 in the Zadar Channel is D-Marin Dalmacija, the largest Croatian marina.
The TP52 SUPER SERIES regatta brings together about 500 participants from all around the world, including current and former Olympic champions and winners of the most significant regattas in the world, such as the Americas Cup. Some of the biggest names in the sailing world, such as Sir Ben Ainslie, have already confirmed their participation in Zadar.
