Team Oman Air heads into the GC32 World Championship aiming to build on their winning start to the 2019 season with a further victory this week in Portugal. The championship marks the second event of the GC32 Racing Tour, with the Oman Air crew having emerged as worthy winners at the GC32 Villasimius Cup in Sardinia last month a clear nine points ahead of the chasing pack. Now the crew of the high-speed foiling catamaran will carry that momentum with them as they prepare for four days of competitive racing in Lagos, southern Portugal.

Royal Rewards for Provezza In Puerto Sherry

(Saturday 22nd June, Puerto Sherry) – So disappointed was Turkish owner Ergin Imre with last season’s outcome for his Provezza team in the 2018 52 SUPER SERIES that it was only when team coach John Cutler, a Kiwi Olympic bronze medallist, agreed to steer for this season, that the hugely passionate owner agreed to press on with renewed rigour and a changed crew line up. 
Imre and his team were rewarded today for their hard work and endeavour and their ability to adapt to the changes when they lifted the historic Royal Cup in Puerto Sherry, Andalucia as narrow winners of the second regatta of the 2019 season.

Puerto Sherry 52 SUPER SERIES Royal Cup

(Friday 21st June, Puerto Sherry) – Bronenosec, the newest boat in the fleet steered by the youngest helmsman, goes into Saturday’s final reckoning for the Puerto Sherry 52 SUPER SERIES Royal Cup with a one point lead over the 2017 circuit champions Azzurra.
