Quantum Racing Looks Forward to 2018 Season

An exciting year of industry-leading performance allowed three Quantum-powered teams to claim spots on the podium during the 2017 season. Platoon and Gladiator worked with side-by-side with Quantum Racing, sharing all resources from morning briefings and post-race debriefs to the tuning and testing sessions. But at the sound of the warning signal, the gloves were off. The collaboration resulted in Platoon finishing second for the season and Quantum third with only 4 points between them and only 11 points between first place and third. Quantum Racing continues the mission of continuous improvement and seeks to regain the overall title in 2018.

The 2018 circuit promises plenty of excitement, too. The season will include the following locations:

  • Croatia, Sibenik, May 22 - 27
  • Croatia, Zadar, June 19 - 24
  • Portugal, Cascais, Rolex TP52 World Championship, July 16 - 21
  • Spain, Puerto Portals, August 20 - 25
  • Spain, Valencia, September 17 - 22

Providing Access and Information

Quantum takes a sincere interest in helping customers achieve their highest goals by sharing its knowledge. Unlike other teams competing under a shroud of secrecy, Quantum Racing is openly working to advance products and support customers through knowledge transfer. Other TP52 racing teams using Quantum sails have full access to the company’s sail design team, on-the-water test results, optimization procedures—everything learned and developed through validation testing.

Better Than a Wind Tunnel: An On-the-Water Test Platform

Quantum Racing is the ultimate test platform for Quantum's Fusion M® sails and iQ Technology®—the company's proprietary sail design and manufacturing process. With more than 200 hours of sailing each season in a full range of wind and sea conditions on all points of sail, the Quantum Racing program provides the most controlled way to gather data, verify performance targets and identify areas for improvement. The team's drive for continuous improvement has yielded outstanding results on the water as well, with the team finishing first or second in every season since inception.

Building Better Sails

Every Quantum sail is developed using iQ Technology, which means sailors who choose Quantum can take pride and satisfaction in knowing their sails are made using the same quality standards and manufacturing methods developed for Quantum Racing’s high-end, Fusion M sails. Our investment in technology and the Quantum Racing program is driven by our ambition to create a better sailing experience for all customers, at every level of sailing.
