HYT and Alinghi :

Flying across the water

partnering with Alinghi !

24/03/2015

Patrick Berdoz, chairman of HYT, launches the partnership with Alinghi under full sail: "this partnership is, above all, a fantastic meeting of two high-tech worlds and two leading teams. Alinghi defies the elements to fly across the water, while HYT defies traditional watchmaking to master the measurement of time using fluids. We are very proud to be associated with Alinghi's new challenge, and with this legendary team."

 

Having won two America's Cups, as well as the Extreme Sailing Series and Decision 35 in 2014, Alinghi is attacking the new season starting with the Bullitt GC32 Racing Tour.

 

A new navigation technique means one thing: innovation. That's why it's completely logical for Alinghi to partner with HYT in the watchmaking field for a season full of discoveries.

 

For the Alinghi Skipper and twice winner of the America’s Cup, Ernesto Bertarelli: "HYT defies the laws of physics with its extremely high-tech Swiss Made developments. Alinghi shares this ambition and these values in more ways than one, and the whole team is delighted with the partnership."

 

Vincent Perriard, CEO of HYT, adds: "Just like HYT, Alinghi has never stopped innovating and reinventing itself. With our hydro-mechanical watch concept, we have reinvented the measurement of time, while Alinghi has helped reinvent sailing with its involvement in GC32 racing."

 

The first season of the Bullitt GC 32 Racing Tour will start on 23rd April in Marseille, with an initial training session, and HYT will be present as the "Official watch of Alinghi".

HYT CEO Vincent Perriard announced the first venture of the brand into the world of international Yacht Racing by joining with RC44 (Co-designed by five-time America’s Cup winner Russell Coutts and naval architect Andrej Justin).

 

HYT is celebrating this partnership by launching a limited edition series of watches specifically designed for the RC44 Class Association. Reflecting the nature of the Class, the watches will be the pinnacle of innovative engineering, high-tech materials, and beautiful design.

 

The ninth edition of the RC44 Championship Tour will make its debut in Malta's renowned capital Valletta, City of the Knights from the 25 – 29 March. The Class will go on to tour some of the finest sailing venues in Europe including a debut for Porto Cervo, Italy and the Swedish Island of Marstrand before rolling onto the Atlantic swell of Cascais, Portugal.
To finish off the season, the fleet will make their winter migration to Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands for the final event of the season in the turquoise waters of the central Caribbean Sea.
