Marinepool partner of Energy Team France in their challenge for the 34th America´s Cup

After plenty of haggling and court decisions in the best tradition of the America´s Cup, the start to the 34th America´s Cup pre-events is less than three weeks ahead.
The first race of the spectacular wing sail AC45 catamarans on August 6 in Cascais, Portugal, will kick off the America´s Cup World Series with two more events to come in in 2011 and a world wide circuit in 2012.
For the first time 9 teams from 8 nations will race the AC45 catamarans, specially designed to get the teams accustomed to wing sails and the handling of these machines, before they change to the AC72, the yachts on which they will sail the Louis Vuitton Cup and eventually the 34th America´s Cup.
Marinepool is proud to announce a partnership with Energy Team France as “Official Technical Clothing Partner” for the team´s challenge for the 34th America´s Cup.

Team led by Loick and Bruno Peyron
Energy Team France is one of two French challengers for the 34th America´s Cup and is headed by Loick and Bruno Peyrons, heroes in France and two of the most celebrated sailing figures around the globe. The syndicate is officially backed by the prestigious Yacht Club de France.
Loick, the younger of the two brothers is one of the most accomplished multihull sailors and particularly famous for his achievements as skipper of “Fujicolor”.
Loick won the the ORMA championship for trimarans in 1996, 1997, 1999 and 2002 and the Transat on Gitana 80. He was crew on Alinghi in the 33rd America´s Cup and winner of the Barcelona World Race with Jean Pierre Dick.
Bruno, his elder brother, has an equally impressive sailing track record. He was the first winner of the Jules Verne Trophy in 1994, completing a round-the-world trip in 80 days. He did it again in 2005 when he set an outright round-the-world sailing record of 50 days on Orange II.
But Bruno has also exceptional experience of organising and managing sailing challenges as one of the masterminds behind “The Race”, an epic non-stop around-the-world race in 100 foot catamarans which stunned the world.
“We are very happy about this partnership between Energy Team and Marinepool and are looking forward to a very successful cooperation.“
Bruno Peyron, CEO, Energy Team France
Competitors for most of the past 30 years they joined forces last winter to win the ultimate prize in sailing and bring it for the frist time ever to France. With their experience, their sailing skills and technological knowhow they will be a formidable team to be reckoned with.
Marinepool is proud to be part of this challenge and to join two of the world´s finest sailors in their effort to win the last trophy that has eluded them and their nation. Team Energy France will exclusively wear Marinepool technical gear renowned for it´s quality and cutting edge technology and design.
