The move combines cofounders Nick and Giles English’s three first loves—aviation, sailing, and clocks—and fulfills a lifelong dream.
“Nick and I grew up with both flying and sailing in our blood, so it’s a dream come true that Bremont has the opportunity to support and promote the amazing story of this world-famous race,” observes Giles, who studied naval architecture. “The adventure, heritage, and engineering fundamental to the Cup make the event a natural fit for Bremont.”
The pair adopted their father Euan English’s love of sailing and engineering savvy, which led them to debut Bremont in 2002.
The America’s Cup is known as the oldest trophy in international sport, the first race having taken place in 1851 off the coast of England.
“The addition of an official timing partner is a key commercial milestone for the America’s Cup,” Harvey Schiller, commercial commissioner of the event, told the press upon release of the news.
