The Royal Cup 52 Super Series Valencia Mar, has been cancelled

As the minimum number of teams to stage a viable, competitive event has not been realised, the first regatta of the 2021 52 Super Series, the Royal Cup 52 Super Series Valencia Mar, has been cancelled. Travel restrictions and previous commitments are contributing factors, but it seems certain the class in the Mediterranean will bounce back with 15-17 boats expected at Puerto Portals in late August.

“We have to give our thanks to the management and staff at Valencia Mar, who have done all they possibly could to ensure this would have been an excellent regatta on our first visit to this increasingly popular all services facility. Valencia is such a popular venue with our owners and sailors, this is very disappointing, but we have no alternative,” Agustín Zulueta, the 52 Super Series CEO commented.

Nonetheless, there is a great desire among owners and teams to return to the racecourses, and it does seem this will happen on a big scale from August 24-28 when Puerto Portals, Mallorca hosts the Puerto Portals 52 Super Series Sailing Week & TP52 20th Anniversary Invitational. This regatta, which has been carried over from last year, will celebrate 20 years of the TP52 Class, with a celebratory festival featuring many well-known boats and teams, as well as the return of 52 Super Series racing. Around 15-17 boats are expected, which should see the 52 Super Series starting on a high note.

The second event will be the Menorca 52 Super Series Sailing Week in Mahón, Menorca September 28 – October 2, leading up to the Rolex TP52 World Championship RCNP 2021 in Palma, Mallorca from November 2-6.
