Manotel and Alinghi: consistent loyalty

Geneva, 14 June 2011 – Official partners of Alinghi since 2001, the Manotel Group announces that it is renewing its support for the famous Swiss team for the tenth consecutive year. The Geneva-based hotel group is particularly proud to be able to associate itself with the team’s performances in the 5th Extreme Sailing Series, an international competition. During nine regattas held in nine different parts of the world, Alinghi is faced up to teams enjoying worldwide respect: Artemis Racing, Emirates Team New Zealand, Groupe Edmond de Rothschild, Luna Rossa, Oman Air Masirah, Red Bull Extreme Sailing Team, Team Extreme, Team GAC Pindar, Team Niceforyou and The Wave.

The hotel group has supported the Alinghi team ever since 2001. “The competition goals of Ernesto Bertarelli and his fellow team-members have always attracted us and fired our imagination,” confides Paul E. Muller, Président Directeur Général of Manotel. “The return in 2003 of the sterling silver cup, which had never made its way back to Europe since the inauguration of the Americas Cup in 1851, showed what Alinghi is really made of. A second victory in 2007 allowed the team to go down in history.”

“We are clearly delighted to be able to pursue this passionate, sporting and human adventure. We are cultivating a number of shared values, including taking on new challenges,” continues Paul E. Muller.

“Manotel’s loyalty is exemplary when it comes to supporting sports,” announces Pierre-Yves Jorand, Alinghi coach and member of the team for over 10 years. “We salute this precious, encouraging, long-term commitment,” he continues.
