Quantum Racing secured the 2014 Barclays 52 SUPER SERIES title today on Race 7 of the ZENITH Royal Cup Marina Ibiza regatta and on the next race they did enough to also win the Ibiza event, their third regatta title of the season.
The American flagged team of Doug DeVos came to Ibiza with a healthy points lead in the four event circuit which attracted 12 TP52s from ten different nations. They remained steadily consistent to close out their second 52 SUPER SERIES championship win in a row with a margin of 15 points over Azzurra and 19 points over Rán Racing.
Quantum Racing, skippered by America’s Cup winner Ed Baird with Terry Hutchinson as tactician also won the US 52 SUPER SERIES in the early Spring and were crowned TP52 World Champions in Sardinia in June.
