  • Quantum Racing lift the TP 52 World Championships in Valencia

    Such was their points cushion this morning that only one of these two boats could win the world title. Quantum Racing had three points margin on Matador. After a long delay waiting for enough of a settled breeze to allow racing, Matador were immediately set on the back foot when they were over the start line. The Americans did a good job herding and covering their rival out to the port tack layline, and Quantum Racing rounded WW1 in eighth with Matador ninth. At the leeward gate Quantum Racing went to the right hand gate mark and Matador to the left. Alberto Roemmers Jr team managed to get first into a sharp left hand shift that got them right back to the Americans, but while they split at times down the final run, there was nothing else Matador could do and Quantum Racing crossed the line to take the title.

  • TP52 World Championships in Valencia - day 1

    Russian entry Synergy won 2 of the 3 races yesterday to take an early lead. The crew are no strangers to winning races on the Audi MedCup Circuit and were podium challengers ten days ago in Sardinia. Such is the organisation on the Russian boat that the new helmsman Eugeniy Neugodnikov had never raced a TP52 before, and this was only his 4th day on the boat! The Team is of course International with Kiwis Rod Dawson as tactician, Chris Main as trimmer, and Italian Francesco Mongelli as navigator. 1.

  • The TP52 World Championship 2010 kicks off next week in Valencia

    Ten TP52s from nine different nations have already registered their entry. Alberto Roemmers' crew on Matador (ARG) will be seeking to defend the world title that they won last year in Palma, Mallorca. But they will face tough competition from a fleet which includes past world championship winning owners or skippers, Quantum Racing (USA) - which completed the double in 2008, winning both the Audi MedCup title and the worlds - and Swedish owner Torbjorn Tornqvist who steered his Artemis (SWE) crew to both titles in 2007. Two British teams, which are not Audi MedCup regulars, Jonny Vincent's Pace (ex RAN/2007 Patches) and Tony Langley's Weapon of Choice (ex 2008 Matador), join the World Championships fleet. While Weapon of Choice enjoyed racing at the Palma Worlds last year, this is Vincent's first season with the Reichel Pugh designed former Patches. Rob Weiland (NED), TP52 Class Manager comments: “Considering the economic climate and what has been happening in other elite areas of the sport, it is great to be looking forward to welcoming the same number of TP52's to Valencia as we had in Palma. It's a great reason to think of joining the class full time for 2011. The reputation of Valencia needs no further introduction and will surely allow many of the teams to feel ‘at home.' " There are several teams that are still considering taking part in this battle for the TP52 world crown, which keeps the entry list still open. “There are potential charter opportunities, not least TeamOrigin which could be available directly from their Valencia base,” Weiland concludes. The 2010 edition of the TP52 World Championship will be held off Valencia from Tuesday October 5 to Saturday October 9, and will be organised by World Sailing Management, the City of Valencia, Consorcio Valencia 2007, the Real Club Náutico de Valencia, the TP52 Class, the Spanish Sailing Federation (RFEV) and the Valencian Sailing Federation (FVV). The base for the 2010 TP52 World Championship will be the Marina Real Juan Carlos I at the heart of the port of Valencia, and the competing TP52 fleet will be docked in front of the iconic Veles e Vents building. 2010 TP52 World Championship entries: Weapon of Choice (GBR) Cristabella (GBR) Synergy (RUS) Artemis (SWE) Bigamist (POR) Pace (GBR) Bribón (ESP) Quantum Racing (USA) Matador (ARG) Audi A1 powered by ALL4ONE (FRA/GER)
