The new partnership was announced today in San Diego at the third round of the America’s Cup World Series. ORACLE Racing has two crews entered. “Racing success is time-critical,” said Spithill. “From nailing a start to claiming victory, everything we do is measured in thousands of seconds and TAG Heuer’s precision helps optimize our performance on the racecourse.”
Racing catamarans capable of speeds in excess of 30mph/48kph requires the ultimate eye protection from piercing spray and exposure to the UV light spectrum. Not only does TAG Heuer’s sports eyewear feature lightweight, comfortable and stylish frames, but also the multi-coated lenses have water-dispersing hydrophobic features.
“Having such a prestigious world-renowned brand join our team is not just great news for ORACLE Racing but for the America’s Cup as well,” said Coutts.
