Eleven teams representing eight nations, five days of intense competition. Yacht racing at its very best. The Rolex TP52 World Championship is the pinnacle event of this thrilling class of powerful yet versatile monohulls. Teamwork and technical precision – in the design, preparation and performance of boats and crews – are everything. At the 2019 edition held in August off Puerto Portals, Spain, Platoon snatched victory on the final day. Rolex is a committed partner of this spectacular regatta and the Official Timepiece as part of an alliance with yachting dating back more than 60 years.
