About

Provezza is owned and skippered by prominent Turkish yachtsman Ergin Imre. He has a long history in big boat sailing dating back 30 years to the IOR days, and spanning IMS as well as One Design racing. They had a strong 2017 season finishing fourth overall and winning the Puerto Portals event in Mallorca. But 2018 was a largely disappointing season with their new Vroljik boat. They suffered a few technical problems early season and were unable to reach the high points of 2017 in the highly competitive fleet.

Changes have been made for 2019, a new keel has been fitted and the boat has been further optimised to develop a more all round performance. John Cutler moves from the coach boat on to the helm and will work with seasoned tactician Hamish Pepper while the hugely experienced Nacho Postigo is unflappable as navigator.

The team are competitive by nature but Ergin Imre enjoys the whole ambience of the 52 SUPER SERIES, loving the cut and thrust of competition on the water but making sure he and his team enjoy their times together off the water too.
