Team Vāyu

The Whitworth family sailing team come from Thailand where they have campaigned a TP52 successfully for some years before in 2021 fulfilling their ambition to come to Europe and race on the 52 SUPER SERIES. Co-owners are brothers Tom and Kevin Whitworth, Typically theirs is a pro-am team with also in 2022 five family members racing on board in key roles, Tom and Kevin being joined by Nicholas, Don and Dylan and supported by professionals like Nic Rogers and Miles Seddon. They raced at the TP52 20th Anniversary Invitational and then took on their first 52 SUPER SERIES event in Menorca. Now, in 2022, the team is at its first full 52 Super Series. An important aspect of their programme is giving the chance to young Thai sailors to experience and learn top level grand prix big boat racing. Their boat was previously Team Vision Future, originally built as Sled.
