About Us

WE CAME, WE SAILED, WE CONQUERED

Alinghi came to the public consciousness in 2003 when we not only became the first European syndicate to win the America’s Cup, but also the first team ever to win on debut. The Auld Mug was retained in the 32nd edition in 2007 to cement our place in history, before the oldest trophy in international sport headed back into American hands in 2010.

LIFE AFTER THE AMERICA’S CUP

A new chapter began in 2011 with our return to the Extreme Sailing Series. A one-design class, it places sport and competition at the forefront, with each team able to approach the start line with the same chance of success. Similarly, the Decision 35 circuit provide a great platform for the team to showcase their skills…Victories in the Bol d’Or on Lake Geneva in 2011 and 2017 (the latter in a new record time for the D35 class of 5 hours 11 minutes) meant that Alinghi joined an elite group of those who have won this prestigious trophy seven times.

AN ERA OF FURTHER SUCCESS

Our recent win in the 2017 D35 Trophy took us to an all-time total of six, cementing our position as the most successful team in the competition’s history. During the same period we also won the Extreme Sailing Series three times, in 2008, 2014 and 2016. And there was not much in it in 2013, with a second place finish by the smallest of margins, just as happened in the 2017 season.
