British America's Cup Teamorigin to exhibit at Southampton and London Boat Show at ExCeL 25/6/07
Teamorigin, the British sailing team intending to bid for the 33rd and 34th America’s Cup, will be exhibiting with features at Southampton and the London Boat Show at ExCeL.
The team will bring the newly liveried ‘GBR 75’ race training America’s Cup boat to the Southampton Show and will also deliver a team presence at the London Boat Show at ExCeL, to which Teamorigin has pledged their exclusive support.
Headed up by Sir Keith Mills, the British businessman who ran London’s victorious bid to host the 2012 Games and Paralympics Games, the team is aspiring to win the America’s Cup and bring the world’s longest running sporting event back to British shores for the first time since its inception over 150 years ago. Commenting on the exhibit Mills said: “Featuring our first fully liveried Teamorigin race training boat at the Southampton Boat Show is the perfect platform to gain the public’s support behind our bid for sailing glory.”
The yacht will be moored on the spectacular Hydropool marina, with visitors to the show able to meet the crew both on the boat and at the feature stage at various times during the show.
