Quantum Racing are 52 Super Series Champions

 
Relive a very special year with some of the greatest sailors in the world - Video highlights here

Quantum Racing may have won the 2018 52 Super Series championship title, but unsailable light winds on the last day of the Valencia Sailing Week event denied them the chance to pitch for their fourth regatta win of the season.

Luna Rossa, the Italian America’s Cup challengers of record, lift the Valencia regatta title, which they add to the Zadar Royal Cup, which they won in Croatia in June.

Underlining again how close the fleet is, Luna Rossa won by just one point from Quantum Racing with Platoon in third, one more point further back.


Harm Müller-Spreer, the German owner-helm wins the owner-driver prize for the regatta and for the season, finishing runners up for the year as he and his Platoon team did in 2017 behind Azzurra.
