Skunked At 52 SUPER SERIES Menorca

Menorca, Spain (May 22, 2019) – The forecasted light sea breeze failed to materialize today for the 11-boat fleet of TP52s at the Menorca 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week, and so racing had to be cancelled for the day.

The standings remain the same with Azzurra (Alberto and Pablo Roemmers) leading the results table by four points ahead of Platoon (Harm Müller-Spreer) after yesterday’s two races.

“It is very frustrating that the sea breeze just did not come in. It is one of those things because of the shape of the smaller island here that it does not really generate the thermal breeze at this time of year, but it is looking more promising going forward,” commented Principal Race Officer Maria Torrijo.

Day Two Results (2 races)
1. Azzurra (ARG/ITA) (Alberto / Pablo Roemmers) (2,1) 3 p.
2. Platoon (GER) (Harm Müller-Spreer) (5,2) 7 p.
3. Bronenosec (RUS) (Vladimir Liubomirov) (1,7) 8 p.
4. Provezza (TUR) (Ergin Imre) (6,3) 9 p
5. Phoenix 12 (RSA) (Tina Plattner) (7,4) 11 p.
6. Phoenix 11 (RSA) (Hasso Plattner) (3,10) 13 p.
7. Quantum Racing (USA) (Doug DeVos) (8,5) 13 p.
8. Alegre (USA/GBR) (Andrés Soriano) (4,11) 15 p.
9. Team Vision Future (FRA) (Jean Jacques Chaubbard) (10,6) 16 p.
10. Sled (USA) (Takashi Okura) (9,8) 17 p.
11. Gladiator (GBR) (Tony Langley) (11,9) 20 p.
