Jaguar Announce Partnership with Teamorigin for Summer of Sailing
London, England: Jaguar announced today a partnership with TEAMORIGIN, the British America's Cup sailing team, created by Sir Keith Mills with the single purpose of winning the America's Cup for Great Britain. This new partnership brings the two parties together for a summer of sailing activities and the first event that will see 'TEAMORIGIN racing with Jaguar' is during Cowes Week in August, when the team will race BMW ORACLE Racing, the current holder of the America's Cup, in the 1851 Cup event.
This new partnership is part of Jaguar's commitment to the best of British sport under the umbrella of the Jaguar Academy of Sport, which aims to recognise, celebrate and inspire the very best of British sporting talent and success. The partnership is further strengthened by the shared commitment of both organisations to strive for improved environmental performance, through TEAMORIGIN's 'Race for Change' strategy, and Jaguar's advanced Lightweight Aluminium technology, which resulted in the recent win of the 2010 What? Car Green Award.
TEAMORIGIN's newly branded livery will appear during Cowes Week (racing takes place between Tuesday 2nd and Friday 6th August) and will feature striking Jaguar branding on both the hull and sails. The spinnaker will feature a Jaguar leaper in Union Jack Motif, the symbol of the Jaguar Academy of Sport.
