BMW is Official Automotive Partner to America’s Cup team „American Magic“.

New York Yacht Club American Magic, a Challenger for the 36th
America’s Cup, announced BMW of North America as an official partner.
BMW will be the exclusive premium automotive provider of the team
during its campaign to reclaim the America’s Cup, the oldest trophy in
international sports and the highest prize in sailing.

“Our team maintains a clear focus on design, innovation and
performance, principles that lead to continuous improvement and
success on the racecourse,” said Terry Hutchinson, Skipper and
Executive Director of American Magic. “BMW was built on and
embodies these ideas. This is why our team of 140 sailors, designers,
engineers, composite fabricators and support crew could not be more
proud to have BMW join our mission to win the America’s Cup.”

BMW’s America’s Cup history stretches back over two decades, and
includes being part of winning efforts in 2010 and 2013. The company’s
long history of innovation and reputation for performance aligns
perfectly with the unrelenting drive of America’s Cup teams.

After focusing on design work, research and on-the-water development
from 2017-2019, American Magic will compete in multiple America’s Cup
World Series events in 2020 before participating in the Prada Cup in
early 2021 in Auckland, New Zealand. The team that wins the Prada Cup
will face the current Defender of the America’s Cup, Emirates Team New
Zealand, in the America’s Cup match from March 6-21, 2021.
