ALINGHI

Alinghi, Defender of the 33rd America’s Cup, congratulates Emirates Team New Zealand on winning the inaugural Louis Vuitton Pacific Series Cup in Auckland, New Zealand today. Alinghi won the first match of the best of five series, but ETNZ took the next three to claim the LVPS Cup. The event has been a great opportunity to get back to some racing and the caliber of the teams – most of them 33rd America’s Cup challengers – has been high for the three week event on the Waitemata.


Next for these 33rd America’s Cup teams are the pre-regattas scheduled for July and October this year, followed by the Spanish Challenger of Record’s annual regatta in November. “This has been a great fun event, with hard competition on the water and a great atmosphere ashore,” said Brad Butterworth, team skipper and four-time America’s Cup winning tactician. “We look forward to getting on with the multi-challenge America’s Cup now in Valencia, starting in July this year and culminating in 2010 with the 33rd America’s Cup Match.”

Emirates Team New Zealand remains one of the most powerful challengers entered in the 33rd Cup: “There is no doubt, they are a very strong team and we look forward to our next match with them – hopefully in the lead up to the 33rd America’s Cup. They have managed and run a very good event here in Auckland alongside Louis Vuitton," said Butterworth.
