About the Sponsor
Alinghi is famous as the first European team ever to win the America's Cup and then to successfully defend it. As a professional sports team, Alinghi was created in 2000 by Ernesto Bertarelli in a bid to win the 31st America’s Cup in Auckland, New Zealand. In reality ‘Alinghi’ had existed long before this as the name of the Bertarelli families’ yachts, including the 1997 Bol d’Or winning trimaran.
