52 Super Series - Quantum Racing victory

Doug DeVos’s Quantum Racing team closed out the Sibenik 52 Super Series regatta title

Led by Terry Hutchinson with Dean Barker on the helm, Quantum Racing closed out the regatta title with a seventh.

In an eventful final light wind race Quantum won by five points over Platoon, the team which were second overall last year.

Takashi Okura’s Sled finished third. And reigning season champions Azzurra, winners of the warm up PalmaVela regatta were fourth.

It is the first time that Quantum Racing have won a 52 SUPER SERIES regatta since they triumphed at Quantum Key West Regatta in January 2017.
