•    The highly competitive fleet of eight TP52s representing seven different nations  to compete
•    Daily 3 minute highlight videos available to digital platforms and broadcasters from Tuesday 18 - Saturday 22 June

Four seconds was the tiny margin that stood between Ergin Imre’s Turkish-flagged Provezza and overall victory at last month’s first 52 SUPER SERIES regatta of the season in Mahón, Menorca. Had Provezza been third rather than fourth – beaten by only four seconds – then overall honours would have gone to them rather than to Harm Müller-Spreer’s Platoon.

Looking at how competitive and close the TP52 fleet was in Menorca, it is clear that this week’s second event the Puerto Sherry 52 SUPER SERIES Royal Cup will be just as close, if not closer. The waters open to the Atlantic off Puerto Sherry, Cádiz will be new to the 52 SUPER SERIES contestants, but it is certain that all of the eight teams competing will have raised their game, each fine-tuning their setup for the different wind and sea conditions they expect at this second of five regattas in 2019.
