ALL4ONE TAKES THE 3rd PLACE IN LOUIS VUITTON TROPHY LA MADDALENA / EMIRATES TEAM NEW ZEALAND WINNER


La Maddalena, Sardinia, Italy - 2010-06-06

ALL4ONE takes the third place in Louis Vuitton Trophy-La Maddalena, after having been defeated by Synergy in the semi-final.
This final result shows a good performance from the French-German team, reaching this stage of the competition for the first time after having finished first of the Round Robin, but also a promising success looking towards the next Louis Vuitton Trophy-Dubai which will take place in November.
Till that, the team will carry on sailing together with one event per month on the Audi MedCup Circuit, which will continue to reinforce the team’s cohesion and to multiply the hours spent together on the water, which are key elements of the ALL4ONE platform.

They have said:

Stephane Kandler, ALL4ONE’s CEO: “Only seven months after its creation, ALL4ONE has proven that this team is able to be competitive against the top teams. We hope now to be able to become a permanent team in the long term, as a team like Team New Zealand is. In order to achieve this, we need to sail as often as possible with the same group. The Louis Vuitton Trophy and the Audi MedCup are the first stages of our long term project which is to become a competitive team in the America's Cup. Thanks to the hard work of our team members and the commitment of our first sponsors (Audi, Canal+ Geodis, adidas, Saint Honoré, Château Tourril), we were able to build strong foundations and the next regattas of the season will enable us to still improve and make this high potential group stronger.”

Jochen Schümann, Skipper and Sports Director: “it was a very successful event for ALL4ONE, and our most successful Round Robin following a learning curve after the first event in Nice, where we finished 7th of the Round Robin and 5th overall, and then after the second event in Auckland, where we finished 3rd of the Round Robin and 5th overall. That’s a big win for us, even if we didn’t win the event and dropped out in the semis where we did two major mistakes: leading and not winning a race is always a big mistake, so then you don’t deserve to reach the final which would be the next best step after being in the semis. But we made a headline winning the Round Robin, so that’s why it is a great success for us in total.”

Next event for the French-German team will be the Marseille Trophy, June 15-20, second step of the Audi MedCup Circuit 2010 for Audi A1 Team powered by ALL4ONE.
