The TP 52 Class

The 52 Super Series is a circuit of sailing competitions of the "TP 52" class of yachts. TP stands for Transpac, which means "transpacific" and refers to the former Transpacific Race from near Los Angeles to Hawaii. This race was the original competition for this boat class before it became popular in Europe and other parts of the world. 52 refers to the length of the yachts, which is defined to 52 feet.

Despite its big dimensions, the TP 52 class is well-known for being fast, very light-weight, and flexibly maneuverable. The yachts' specifications allow both inshore and offshore usage.
