Consistency Will Be Key at the Rolex TP52 World Championship on the Bay of Palma

The Turkish-flagged team, which has John Cutler steering and Hamish Pepper as tactician, has already tasted success on this incredibly close-fought 52 SUPER SERIES season, taking a slender victory in light-to-moderate airs in Puerto Sherry in June. With Bay of Palma ace navigator Nacho Postigo helping decode the subtleties of today’s course area, Provezza was one of the first to choose the right side, leading Azzurra and Quantum Racing to the top mark, building a lead of over 100 metres by the leeward gate. But the 2015 world champions Azzurra got back on terms on the second run, splitting gybes with the leaders, but fading to leave the win to Provezza.
