One of the most enthralling and closely-contested competitions in the sport of sailing, the Rolex TP52 World Championship is the pinnacle of grand prix monohull racing. Demanding excellence and a high-level of performance from talented crews competing on evenly-matched 52-foot (15.85 metre) yachts, enormous emphasis is placed on human skill and consistent teamwork. The 2021 edition will be held in Palma, Mallorca, an environment which offers stable and challenging sailing conditions. Across a five day and maximum ten race regatta, competition will be intense on short, compressed courses where the finest margins can prove decisive. Rolex has been a proud partner of the event since 2017. Discover more https://on.rolex.com/310HYH2
