About

Platoon are one of the most successful teams on the 52 SUPER SERIES, twice back-to-back runners up for the season – only ever a few points or places shy of overall victory – and winner of the Rolex TP52 World Championship twice in three years, 2017 and 2019. Indeed they will seek to defend that title this year. 
The team is owned and run by Hamburg businessman Harm Muller-Spreer who is a lifetime racing sailor particularly also in the Dragon keelboat. He raced on the original MedCup Circuit before a long break returning with a top crew and top boats from the Vrolijk design office. 
One of the very top owner-drivers in the world, Muller-Spreer has had a very settled team in recent years. The afterguard partnership of Jordi Calafat and John Kostecki is supported by British navigator Jules Salter. 
Trimmers include America’s Cup winners Ross Halcrow and Dirk De Ridder (mainsheet). They do have new changes this season. Sean Couvreux joins as bowman, young Australian Alex Goff replaces Pepe Ribes in the pit.
