Pewaukee, WI-Quantum Racing has chosen Harken as its Official Supplier for 52 SUPER SERIES 2015, the world's leading international Grand Prix monohull circuit. Quantum's brand new build features a complete inventory of Harken blocks, pedestal, winch, hydraulic and other systems-cool products that reflect Harken's advanced technologies and latest thinking in hardware design. Harken has supported the TP52 class and its Box Rule philosophy since its beginning in 2005, working with these elite competitors to develop hardware that will help shape the future of everyone who sails. 

The 52 Super Series provides the world's top monohull, in-shore fleet racing at the highest level, serving as an ideal product testing and validation platform for Quantum Sails and selected partners. This year, Quantum welcomes Harken as an official supplier on board the new Quantum Racing TP52. "Everything on the boat contributes to performance. As the leading manufacturer of sailboat hardware, Harken was an easy decision for Quantum Racing," says Ed Reynolds, President of Quantum Sail Design Group and Quantum Racing Managing Director. For the Harken team, adds Reynolds, "Quantum Racing provides an entry point into the most competitive level of the sport and an opportunity to dialogue with professional sailors who not only demand the best, but also are very direct in providing feedback essential for product evolution. We have a history of collaborating with marine providers for this purpose and Harken is taking advantage of this direct feedback loop. We're happy to be working closely with them - it's a valuable opportunity for both organizations."

"Harken is proud to continue its winning partnership with the Quantum Racing Team. From conception to the launch of their new TP52, our engineers have worked closely with Quantum designers, sailors, and shore crew, testing and evaluating winch, pedestal, hydraulic, and hardware systems both on and off the water. The result of this collaboration is a host of cutting-edge products that give Quantum its winning edge; products that will be available to all sailors in our sport.  Sail fast Quantum Team." -Mark Wiss, Director of Business Development.
