TP52 Gladiator with EasyCurrents
Meet the Gladiator team members at http://www.52superseries.com/teams/gladiator/
“Gladiator is a well known team owned and backed by sucessful English businessman Tony Langley.
They have learned a great deal and improved progressively since their first foray into the TP52 regattas in the Med in 2009. Until last season the Gladiator team had optimised and updated the 2009 Vrolijk designed former Artemis, a potent weapon in different preferred conditions. Over recent years they have won races regularly to prove themselves regatta contenders but as yet a major title or season podium has eluded them. Gladiator finished the 2014 season in fifth place overall.
Now owner-driver Langley and his crew make the step from one of the oldest, but best optimised boats on the circuit to a brand new 2015 design and build Gladiator for the new season. Built at Persico in Italy to the Vrolijk design the first race for the new boat is due to be Valencia. Navigator is past 52 champion and Volvo winner Jules Salter and tactician Cameron Appleton. They have all the hardware and talent to finish on the podium this season.”
