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

Thanks to our recent win in the 2017 D35 Trophy, this takes our all-time total to six and cements our position as the most successful team in the competition’s history. The period also saw us top the standings three times in the Extreme Sailing Series – in 2013, we lost out on the title on Act win count back, but there was no such heartbreak in 2014, with our second victory in the series, following our triumph in 2008. More recently in 2016, in a fight lasting until the very last legs, we won the Extreme Sailing Series for the third time.
