Let’s start with the popular class ТР52. The fact that last Tuesday, boat racing series 52 Super Series finally arrived on Board the cargo ship BBC Dolphin from Cape town to Valencia. But while the “Dolphin” went to Europe, was made two important decisions.
First, the user of series has decided to cancel a stage of the 52 Super Series, which was to be held 18 – 22 July in Valencia. Second, the same leadership had decided to hold the world Cup 15 – 19 September in Puerto portals in Majorca (Spain).
Hopefully, now that the calendar season ТР52 finally got finished (though tragicomic) is a kind of. Although… Judge for yourself.
