Nespresso joins forces with emirates team New Zealand
Faithful to its love of sailing, nespresso is lending its support to team new zealand and its leader grant dalton, a true legend of ocean sailing competitions. Together, they are setting sail for victory!
Nespresso is proving its love of sailing yet again by supporting Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ). The Kiwi team is directed by Grant Dalton, one of the most famous figures in ocean sailing competitions.
Born in Auckland in 1957, Grant Dalton participated in his first regatta at the age of 8. He has since demonstrated his natural flair for sailing during seven round-the-world yacht races. His fans still have fond memories of his epic round-the-world trip in 2001 aboard a giant catamaran: he made it around the globe in just 62 days of non-stop sailing, breaking several records in the process. Grant Dalton’s winning mentality and ability to bring a team of sailors together made him the natural choice as Team Principal of Emirates Team New Zealand in 2004. With his inherent, deep-felt love of the ocean, Grant is the embodiment of all forms of excellence when it comes to yachting. Nespresso proudly shares his values of expertise, innovation and performance.
THE BIGGEST TROPHY OF ALL
Grant Dalton’s values have proved a vital catalyst for bringing together the Emirates Team New Zealand crew, who are preparing to compete for the biggest trophy of them all: the 34th America’s Cup. The team has already won this event twice, in 1995 and 2000. The finals of the event will take place in San Francisco from July to September 2013. Nespresso, which was already involved in the 32nd America’s Cup, is relishing the opportunity to participate once again alongside Grant Dalton and his skipper Dean Barker. You can follow the progress of Emirates Team New Zealand and its forthcoming races in upcoming issues of the ‘Nespresso Magazine’.
