Η τελευταία κούρσα του πρωταθλήματος ήταν απλώς διαδικαστική για την ομάδα που τρέχει με τα χρώματα του Yacht Club Costa Smeralda και κατάφερε μετά από 7 χρόνια προσπαθειών να πάρει την 1η θέση. 
Το Azzura με ένα καταπληκτικό φινάλε στη Βαλένθια κατάφερε να κερδίσει τον τίτλο μετά από 4 σταθμούς, στη Βαρκελώνη, στη Σαρδηνία, στη Πάλμα και τέλος στη Βαλένθια. 
Με 5 πρωτιές μια δεύτερη μια τρίτη και μια πέμπτη θέση τερμάτισαν 7 βαθμούς μπροστά από το άλλο σκάφος της Audi το Audi Sailing Team powered by All4One

Ο Niklas Zennström, που είναι και ο νέος πρόεδρος της κλάσης, έφερε το Ran στην 1η θέση της τελευταίας κούρσας παίρνοντας έτσι την 3η θέση και στη Βαλένθια αλλά και στην γενική του πρωταθλήματος. 
Δεύτεροι είναι για φέτος οι περσινοί νικητές το Quantum Racing που ήρθε στη Βαλένθια ως το φαβορί με 6 βαθμούς διαφορά από το Azzura, αλλά η εμφάνιση του δεν ήταν στο επίπεδο που χρειαζόταν και η 4η θέση στη Βαλένθια τους στοίχισε την πρωτιά σε όλο το πρωτάθλημα.

"Είμαστε πολύ περήφανοι" είπε ο Vasco Vascotto, "ήταν μεγάλη πρόκληση, το επίπεδο ήταν πολύ υψηλό, είμαστε χαρούμενοι για τον όμιλο μας, για την οικογένεια Roemmers (είναι οι ιδιοκτήτες του σκάφους) και για όλους όσοι εμπλέκονται στο πρόγραμμα μας. Αλλά πρέπει να ξεκινήσουμε αμέσως την προετοιμασία γιατί ξέρω ότι του χρόνου θα είναι πολύ πιο δύσκολο το πρωτάθλημα. Αυτό είναι ένα άθλημα που δεν αρκεί μόνο να σκέφτεσαι το πως κέρδισες φέτος, αλλά και το πως έχασες πέρυσι." 
Το παρθενικό 52 Super Series ολοκληρώθηκε με τρία διαφορετικά σκάφη να κερδίζουν τις 4 ρεγκάτες που έγιναν, τα Quantum Racing, Rán και Audi Azzurra Sailing Team. Το πρόγραμμα για την επόμενη χρονιά έχει ήδη καταρτιστεί και ξεκινά τον Ιανουάριο στο Key West.

Vasco Vascotto, Audi Azzurra Sailing Team 

“We are very proud. It was a huge challenge, the standard is so high and so we are happy for the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, for the Roemmers family, for everybody it is an important result. And we need to start working tomorrow again, because I am sure that next year it will be harder and the teams will be ready to beat us. This is still a sport and so we have to always think not only how we won this year, but also how we lost in the past. It means a lot to me. This is part of my heart. We are still a young team in the sailing circles and we want to win more together. I have won other things but this is important to win because the team have been trying so hard for so long.” 

Ed Baird, Quantum Racing: 

“Obviously we are disappointed. We never want to drop boats, we never want to do that. We are still learning and trying our hardest and I have full faith in the group here. One of the things that has gone on all week, is that despite how frustrating it has been to make decisions that seemed like they were the ones, and then have them go wrong, the group was always very positive and always fighting. I appreciate that from a team. 

Adrian Stead, Rán Racing: 

“We sailed the boat really well, we changed gears really well in the conditions. I think it was shifty enough and puffy enough that as long as you could be under the right breeze at the right time for longest, that gave you the speed and the advantage. We have come a long way. We have improved. We were weak in the light stuff an have improved there.” 

Stephane Kandler, Audi Sailing Team powered by All4One: 

“We are very happy with our season, we started late and with only little means. So we are quite happy to get two podiums over the season and won the Copa del Rey. So we are pleased to have done the season. Congratulations for the season to Azzurra who did a great job.” 

Tony Langley, owner-driver Gladiator: 

“It has been a good season for us. I am quite happy with the way things have gone and with the progress we have made. We had better results in Porto Cervo but we have been sailing the boat quite well. The other guys are coming after us now. We were tacked on three times today. We are doing things fairly right now.” 
“Today we had good start, a bad shift, and then we were back in it again. And in the end we finish by taking a scalp off a team with a few gold medals between them and that’s great, that’s quite something.” “We are packing everything up now and heading to the US for the first events of next season. We are already really looking forwards to Key West and Miami.”
