With 9 attending teams, racing for the 4th event of 52 Super Series, the TP52s are back to Marina di Scarlino after 5 years. Well known sailors from all over the world will take part in a pure-competition week.

The fourth and penultimate event of the 52 SUPER SERIES 2022 will take place from 26 September to 1 October, landing after years of absence on the Tuscan coast.

The coveted circuit was hosted by the Marina di Scarlino in 2016 and 2017; after a false start in 2020, the year in which the event was canceled due to the pandemic, it finally returns to the waters of the Gulf of Follonica.

The Royal Cup 52 SUPER SERIES Scarlino will kick off with the practice race on Monday 26 September, exactly two months after the last event that took place in the Balearic waters of Puerto Portals.

After winning in Puerto Portals (Mallorca) at the end of July, Phoenix (of the Plattner family) arrives in Scarlino as leader of the circuit, albeit with only two points ahead of Quantum Racing by Doug DeVos, winner of the first two regattas of the season and current World Champion.

Platoon of Harm Müller Spreer was named vice world champion at the Rolex TP52 World Championship in Cascais (Portugal) and occupies the third place in the provisional general results.

With a real parterre-de-roi, the competition promises to be exciting, given the presence of the most famous sailors in the world, from Australians Tom Slingsby and Will Ryan, to the British Nick Asher and Paul Goodison, to the Americans Terry Hutchinson and Ed Baird, passing through the Italians Francesco Bruni, Vasco Vascotto and Michele Ivaldi and the New Zealander Hamish Pepper, just to name a few.

A huge logistic effort is put in place through the synergy among Yacht Club Isole di Toscana, The Municipality of Scarlino, Marina di Scarlino, Scarlino Yacht Service and Resort Baia Scarlino.
