52 SUPER SERIES technical partners on board for 2020


For what is billed as a thrilling six-event year of competition that will take the circuit to South Africa for the first time, the 52 SUPER SERIES is again welcoming the support of technical partners Quantum Sails, North Sails, King Marine, and Longitud Cero.

Grand-prix boat builders, King Marine and Longitud Cero, and sailmakers Quantum Sails and North Sails, each have a long and storied history with the world’s leading monohull circuit. All have won the 52 SUPER SERIES overall title many times since 2012 when the series ran for the first time.

“As a high-performance class, we are driven to push the boundaries of what is possible in our sport, on our race tracks in South Africa and Europe this year; and our Technical Partners’ missions are all aligned with what we, as a globally renowned series, and the owners and teams, are all looking to achieve,” says Agustín Zulueta, CEO of 52 SUPER SERIES. “All together we enjoy and benefit in so many ways from their endeavours, supporting what is a fantastic product, which is avidly followed all around the sailing world.”

“Every November we get the sail designers who have worked with the various teams together for a full debrief on what we have learned from the previous season and what is the next area of development for the coming season,” says Paul Westlake, North Sails Executive Vice President, and Mainsail Trimmer for Bronenosec. “The partnership we have with the 52 SUPER SERIES helps us to grow the support we can give clients and to enable North Sails to help them make more gains in the future. We have the utmost confidence in our sail design tools and 3Di composite technologies to provide our clients fast, reliable, cutting edge sail wardrobes. Still, we are always exploring the limits for ways to improve as we progress along the highly demanding season consisting of 60 races with all to count.”

Racing at the first event of the 2020 season, the Odzala Discovery Camps 52 SUPER SERIES V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, starts on Monday 2nd March and finishes on Friday 6th March.
