The 2016 52 SUPER SERIES is ready for action in Scarlino, Italy.
Recall that the battle for the third step on the 2015 podium went down to single points. The crew that won the opening regatta of last season, Valencia, – one of the only two events they contested in 2015 – served notice of their potential when they won Tuesday’s practice race by a few metres. Owner-driver Zennström is unequivocal in his belief that they can win in Scarlino:
“Of course we can win here. Last year we won the practice race in Valencia and won the regatta and so we have done the same here and we look forward to carrying on that tradition. With the 52 SUPER SERIES, it’s about not having the shockers, the big scores, and just staying consistent. We have a bit of a learning curve being back on the boat, back racing in the fleet but the more hours we have on the boat the better we are getting.”
