Things we love about The America´s Cup

May 20, 2013

In July, the most prestigious sailing race will start on the shores of San Francisco. Beginning with the Luis Vuitton Cup, three teams will race each other in high performance multi-hull boats, which literally fly through the air.

We love the America´s Cup and especially Emirates Team New Zealand for its adventurous spirit and performance. Here are some reasons why:

Love San Francisco

The Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Union Square, the famous cable cars…even the weather! We love San Francisco, the cosmopolitan host city of the 34th edition of The America´s Cup.

Love the Team

Emirates Team New Zealand is one of the world´s greatest professional sailing teams. Run by sailing legend Grant Dalton, CEO, the team is made up of some of the best sportsmen in sailing. In fact, the entire team on and off shore are a bunch of very cool lifelovers. They work hard, play hard and live life with passion.

Love the shoes

The Sailing Collection. This is a collection of sailing inspired footwear created by Camper, especially for Emirates Team New Zealand. Designed with the team in mind, there are a number of different options including MATCH, a limited edition dockside casual shoe combining the look of a retro sneaker with some of the features of a sailing shoe.

Offshore Emirates Team New Zealand will themselves be wearing some special shoes designed by us. CHALLENGER is a highly-technical shoe developed especially for them and was tested under extreme sailing conditions for performance on the AC72. But we´ll tell you more about this very soon…

Love Design

The America´s Cup today stands for state of the art technology and ultimate performance. These boats were designed to fly, which means they Hydrofoil and can reach speeds of up to 44 knots, which is flying on the water around 81km per hour.

We will be featuring more about Camper´s sponsorship of Emirates Team New Zealand and the America´s Cup. However, to keep up to date with all the race news, follow us on Facebook.
