The 52 Super Series concluded its inaugural season with three different boats winning regattas: Quantum Racing, Rán and Audi Azzurra Sailing Team. Going into the final event in Valencia, Quantum Racing held the series lead and was looking to bring home the win. In the end, it was Team Azzurra that claimed the top spot with Quantum Racing finishing second overall.
The program for next season’s 52 Super Series will start in January in Key West, followed by the 52 World Championship in Miami, FL in March. There, Quantum Racing will be defending back-to-back World Championships from 2010 and '11. In May, the teams will return to the Mediterranean for a series of four events.
