Sail + Leisure is SUPER proud to have been a media partner to the two SUPER SERIES events scheduled for Cape Town in 2020.
Although the Rolex TP 52 World Championship was sadly cancelled due to the pandemic, we had a great time during the Odzala Discovery Camps 52 SUPER SERIES V&A Waterfront Cape Town event.
A huge thanks goes to Hasso and Tina Plattner for making this happen. And a big thank you to Worldsport South Africa who, along with the 52 SUPER SERIES organization delivered an incredible event.
We hope to see world-class sailors and world-class boats sailing in our waters again soon.

🎥 FINAL DAY – Odzala Discovery Camps 52 SUPER SERIES V&A Waterfront – Cape Town
The Cape of Dreams
With no racing possible on the final day of the Odzala Discovery Camps 52 SUPER SERIES V&A Waterfront Cape Town regatta, the 2019 circuit champions Azzurra lift the first series title of the 2020 season.
Racing in South Africa for the first time ever represented something of a voyage of discovery for the 52 SUPER SERIES owners and crews, but the 10 teams from eight nations were rewarded with good racing in a variety of wind conditions, including a visit from the strong Cape Doctor wind, all set against the spectacular backdrop of Table Mountain and the Lion’s Head, whilst embracing the lively, colourful, friendly welcome at the city’s V&A Waterfront.

Azzura at the cusp of Cape Town Success
As predicted, the Cape Doctor, Cape Town’s renowned strong, local south-easterly wind came in for the penultimate day of racing at the first event of the 2020 season to produce some thrilling racing.

Platoon Bounce Back, Azzurra’s Consistency Is Not Contagious
After a very disappointing opening to the regatta, Harm Muller-Spreer’s world champions Platoon bounced back to record a second and first today as the top-scoring boat in the fleet. But, after six races have been sailed off Cape Town, it is still the 2019 overall title holders Azzurra who lead, today extending their cushion to ten points.

Twists, turns, breakages and collisions!
Technical breakdowns unsettled Hasso Plattner’s Phoenix 11 team as the 2019 circuit champions Azzurra maintained their consistent form to overhaul the local Cape Town favourites who drop to second place after four races have been sailed at the regatta.
