Paul Cayard and Murray Jones join TP52 Siemens

The 32nd America's Cup might be over but the TP52 and GP42 circuits in the Mediterranean are reaching their peak in the month of July. With just a couple of weeks left till the season's big TP52 regattas in the island of Mallorca, the teams are announcing their latest incorporations.

Earlier this morning, the TP52 team Siemens announced two big names, Paul Cayard and Murray Jones, will be joining in order to call tactics in the next two events. New Zealander Jones will sail in the 13th Regata Breitling (July 18 to 22) while Cayard will be on board in the Copa del Rey (July 28 to August 5).

Paul Cayard, one of the world's sailing legends, certainly doesn't need introduction for our readers. Murray Jones was Alinghi's strategist in the 31st and 32nd America's Cups and before that he was twice victorious with Team New Zealand in 1995 and 200.
