Tenth edition of 52 SUPER SERIES in 2022

Published on December 8th, 2021

The 52 SUPER SERIES, the world’s leading grand prix monohull circuit, will mark its historic tenth year of continued success with a five regatta season from May through October. After a 2021 circuit limited to three events in three months, the 2022 season plots a route that begins in Spain on the Atlantic before stops in Portugal, Mallorca, Italy, to conclude on the Mediterranean side of Spain.

The wild and beautiful Galician coast off Baiona will raise the curtain on what promises to be a hotly contested 2022 season. The historic Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona will host the class for the first time and promise a very warm welcome.

On the race course, a good range of conditions are expected in May, the prevailing winds usually being NE’ly around 12-16 knots, the race area located on the edge of the reliable Portuguese trade winds which blow down the Atlantic coast of the Iberian peninsula.

In June, the circuit’s second regatta will be the Rolex TP52 World Championship on the Atlantic waters off Cascais. It will be the sixth time the 52 SUPER SERIES has been to the Portuguese venue which has pretty much always delivered spectacular conditions, open seas with surfing waves and brisk winds, providing some of the most memorable racing of recent years and some of the most inspiring action images, exemplifying TP52 racing at its best.

High summer on the Bay of Palma and it is Puerto Portals which will host the third event of the season. The well appointed marina is well established as the most popular summer venue offering great racing in the reliable sea breeze on the water, a great secluded, sheltered sailors lounge while the race fleet takes pride of place.

Five years after first visiting this wonderful, secluded Tuscan purpose built have the circuit hosted in late September by the fashionable Marina di Scarlino. In 2017 the race track proved open and challenging with good range of wind conditions whilst the competition area enjoys a beautiful scenic backdrop. Ashore, the facilities in the marina are second to none whilst owners and crews have enjoyed the range of regional dishes and wines.

But the return to Barcelona is a move which has been widely applauded, notable as it is where the 52 SUPER SERIES began, rising from the ashes of the MedCup at the Trofeo Conde de Godo in May 2012. So there will be double cause for celebration – marking the longevity of the circuit and the gateway to the next 10 years, as well as celebrating the season’s champions. Racing in late October ashore there is loads of activity in the vibrant city which remains popular year round with tourists.
