With just 5 stops on the 2018 calendar confined to just three countries, the TP52 SuperSeries is contracting geographically s it expands in fleet size and reach.  Inspired by the addition of America’s Cup teams Quantum and Luna Rossa (with some participation from BAR crew aboard Gladiator), the Series’ media outreach and production continues to improve in a boat that looks a hell of a lot sexier than any other nearly 20-year old box-rule Class, and it’s good enough to have brought the (in)famous Plattner family back to big boat box rule racing after a dog’s life for Hasso and Tina aboard their 5O5s.

Dean Barker’s Quantum Racing has a big lead on the season, and you can watch the rest of the week live with the TP52 app.

After a long absence from on-line broadcasting, it’s great to see the TP52s back on the screen in the big stuff just off Cascais, Portugal in big breeze.  No graphics and a single, high-mounted ultra-long shore lens (edit – and now they’ve got a boat-mounted FLIR cam!) mean it’s a far cry from the heady, high-production Medcup TV that helped push the TP52 towards its current status as the most successful big boat box rule in history, but with decent commentary from the knowledgeable Andi Robertson and a 52 crew, it’s a watchable addition to the live sailing fare on the menu this month.

Or you could watch live videogame representations of today’s Little America’s Cup finals, where latest iteration of the most successful C-Class in history battles against the modern marvel that swept the last one.  Spoiler alert: The green boat will win.
