Peters & May extends 52 Super Series collaboration for 3 more years
Wrapping up a successful tenth anniversary season for the 52 Super Series, the grand prix monohull circuit says it is delighted to have signed a new collaboration agreement with logistics partners Peters & May. Having first formalised the partnership in 2015 this new agreement spans the period 2023 to 2025.
During the 2022 season, Peters & May handled all the transportation of the high-performance TP52s and also looked after 80 per cent of the fleet containers for all five events.
The shipments began with MV Promise moving eight of the nine teams from Sagunto to Vigo in April, followed by the shipment between Baiona Sailing Week and the Rolex TP52 World Championship in Cascais. MV Monte Rosa then moved eight teams from Lisbon to Palma in June then Palma to Piombino for the Royal Cup in Scarlino, Italy. The final shipment saw the transportation of five teams from Piombino to Vilanova (Barcelona) for the recent season finale.
“Racing yacht logistics are always time crucial,” says Nazaret Cabanero who ran the logistics for the series this year. “Under current market circumstances where available ships and spaces are short, and prices are high and liable to fluctuation, it is a very challenging task for our teams. This year they have pulled it off yet again and we could not be prouder. Being involved in the 52 Super Series logistics is a great privilege for Peters & May and we enjoy working with the teams’ many members which we have come to know as friends.”
