The 52 SUPER SERIES will welcome an enthusiastic new French team to the circuit this season as Dr Jean-Jacques Chaubard’s Team Vision Future set out to raise their game on the world’s leading monohull circuit after several years of success in the Mediterranean and further afield. Regular podium finishes at events like Copa del Rey in their previous TP52 and GP42, such as finishing second to Alegre at the Bay of Palma summer showcase in 2017, left the passionate owner and his amateur crew with the desire to move up a level and try some 52 SUPER SERIES events.
They have been getting to grips with their new boat which is the former 2015 Botin designed Sled, doing all they can to ensure they are as competitive as possible.
They sailed together first with a GP42 which was previously the Med Cup boat Near Miss and then raced the second Team Vision Future which was a TP52 which started out as the 2008 Artemis. Owner Dr Jean-Jacques Chaubard is an ophthalmic surgeon who runs Vision Future eye clinics in the south of France and has been racing for more than 20 years.
The crew are all amateur sailors with the exception of the skipper-helm Mergui. Many have come through the Olympic and dinghy classes in the Hyeres and Toulon area.
