Omega Emirates Team New Zealand - Winner of the 36th America’s Cup

The Kiwis defeated the Challenger of Record Luna Rossa in the first to seven series, by a margin of 7 races to 3 after a hard-won battle on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour

Emirates Team New Zealand’s 2021 victory marks their fourth America’s Cup win, having claimed the “Auld Mug” three times prior, in 1995, 2000 and 2017.

The win also represents a significant milestone in OMEGA’s distinguished sailing history, as the brand has been a proud supporter of Emirates Team New Zealand since 1995 and served as Official Timekeeper at this year’s event in Auckland: reprising a vital role undertaken twice before in 2000 and 2003.

Omega congratulates Emirates Team New Zealand - winner of the 36th America’s Cup.

A unique feature of the 36th edition has been the design of the boats. State-of-the-art AC75 monohulls that literally fly, with T-wing hydrofoils mounted on port and starboard, a double-skinned semi-battened mainsail and the absence of a keel. As winners of this year’s regatta, Emirates Team New Zealand will, of course, be defender of the title when the great clash on the waves takes place again.
