Azzurra

Azzurra Sailing Team is a collaboration between the long time YCCS and TP52 Class member Alberto Roemmers, the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and its sporting symbol Azzurra, the first italian challenger for the America's Cup (1983).

Their boat is, like their 2012 one, a Botin design build at King Marine in Valencia.
The team won the 52 Super Series 2015 and finished 2nd overall in 2016 on a high note winning the final event in Cascais.
