Enhancing the fan experience

Grant Dalton, Emirates Team New Zealand boss and America’s Cup Event CEO, is the man who drove his team to victory at the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda in 2017 – bringing the trophy back to New Zealand after 17 years.

In this short video, Grant introduces the America’s Cup, the “pinnacle” of the sport, where boats and teams have always been at the top of technology.

He also highlights the great fit between one of the most technology advanced sailing competitions in the world and Capgemini, with a partnership that promises a great experience for the viewers.

A little history

The America’s Cup is the oldest international competition still operating in any sport. Match races are held between two sailing yachts, one from the yacht club that currently holds the trophy (known as the defender) – this year, Emirates Team New Zealand – and the other from the yacht club that is challenging for the cup (the challenger). Watch the video to find out more about one of the most exciting events in sailing.
