Rolex TP52 World Championship

The Rolex TP52 World Championship is the highlight of the 52 SUPER SERIES, the world’s premier monohull Grand Prix racing circuit. This year’s edition of the annual event brought together 10 teams from seven countries and four continents in Barcelona, Spain, where they competed for one of the most sought-after prizes in sailing. At the end of an exacting series that demanded patience, determination and skill, the German team Platoon, led by owner/helm Harm Müller-Spreer, won its third world title, demonstrating an exceptional ability to deliver under pressure on an epic final day. Rolex has been the Title Sponsor of the world championship, and the Official Timepiece of the 52 SUPER SERIES, since 2017 as part of a proud partnership with the world of sailing stretching back more than 60 years.

Rolex has always associated with activities driven by passion, excellence, precision and team spirit. The Swiss watchmaker naturally gravitated towards the elite world of yachting six decades ago and the brand’s enduring partnership now encompasses the most prestigious clubs, races and regattas, as well as towering figures in the sport, including ground-breaking round-the-world yachtsman Sir Francis Chichester and the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, Sir Ben Ainslie. Today, Rolex is Title Sponsor of 15 major international events – from leading offshore races such as the annual Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race and the biennial Rolex Fastnet Race, to grand prix competition at the Rolex TP52 World Championship and spectacular gatherings at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and the Rolex Swan Cup. It also supports the exciting SailGP global championship in which national teams race identical supercharged F50 catamarans on some of the world’s most famous harbours. Rolex’s partnerships with the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, Royal Ocean Racing Club, Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, Yacht Club Italiano, New York Yacht Club and Royal Yacht Squadron, among others, are the foundation of its enduring relationship with this dynamic sport.
