How to Follow the 2018 52 SUPER SERIES
The 52 SUPER SERIES remains the world’s leading grand prix monohull first-past-the-post sailboat racing.

Now, entering its seventh season with the strongest fleet ever, circuit organisers have massively improved the 24/7 access to the action and information. Top of the list of new innovations is the 52 SUPER SERIES App.
Live Boat Tracking
State-of-the-art boat tracking technology will allow 52 SUPER SERIES fans to follow their favourite teams at the Sibenik 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week in May and the 52 SUPER SERIES Valencia Sailing Week in September. Fans can choose between the interactive 3D Virtual Eye whereby they can track specific teams and move around the racecourse, or the incredibly lifelike 2D live stream that will be broadcast through the homepage (from Day 2). Both versions are available via the 52 SUPER SERIES App, and both are paired with with expert commentary on and off the water. All shows start 15-minutes before racing is due to start.
