After finishing the Audi MedCup circuit with three podium places in five events, the next and final sailing stage in 2010 for ALL4ONE will be the Louis Vuitton Trophy Dubai from 12 to 27 of November.


This regatta will show once again top-level competition and spectacular duels between worlds best teams racing in pairs of supplied even America's Cup Class boats. The entry list gathers the top teams of 2010 Louis Vuitton Trophy season: Emirates Team New Zealand (NZL), Synergy (RUS), ALL4ONE (FRA-GER), Artemis (SWE), as well as Mascalzone Latino (ITA, Challenger of Record of the 34th America's Cup) and BMW Oracle Racing (USA, Defender of the 34th America's Cup), for the final event in Dubai.

ALL4ONE will actually go to Dubai already on November 6th, the French-German team led by Jochen Schümann and Sebastien Col, has been invited for a training week by Dean Barker, skipper and helmsman of Emirates Team Zealand. Training with ETNZ is certainly the best possible match racing preparation on America's Cup Class boats for ALL4ONE, but also recognition of ALL4ONE's 2010 performance from its toughest, and the best competitor in 2010.


Stephane Kandler, ALL4ONE's CEO: 'We have a strong sailing program at the highest level to close our 2010 season with the Louis Vuitton Trophy Dubai, after having competed in the Audi MedCup, the TP52 Worlds and three other Louis Vuitton Trophy events this year. These top-level competitions have allowed us to face regularly the best teams in the world. We consider that building a strong team with enough common experience is the most important thing to be competitive whatever the boat is, including in the America's Cup. This is what we have started to do with success since more than a year, sailing against many of the teams who are potential Challengers for the next America's Cup.

The America's Cup has actually always been one of our goals and we wish to take part to it, as the challenge will be more open than ever with the changes including the new format and multihull boat rule for the 34th America's Cup.

We're working on the feasibility of a project with Bruno Peyron and Loïck Peyron, which would gather our team experience and learnings of past America's Cup campaigns with best experiences in multihull sailing, including last America's Cup races - first America's Cup racing ever in multihulls.'

Jochen Schümann, ALL4ONE Sports Director: 'We had a successful 2010 season in the Audi MedCup and the Louis Vuitton Trophy events, achieving good results as a team. Only one year ago ALL4ONE was created in order to race in the most challenging international sailing events, where we must compete with the best teams in the world to become a top team. We're now working hard towards the nextseasonwhile trying to set up the best possible America's Cup project.'

ALL4ONE has proven to have the main assets of a great team in order to achieve its goals successfully, but also to have the capacity to convince partners to join the team's effort. ALL4ONE will then be able to become a Challenger of the 34th America's Cup, which is an important target for the coming months.


About ALL4ONE

> Two sailing enthusiasts, Stephan Kandler, (CEO of former K-Challenge from France, Challenger in the 32nd America's Cup) and Jochen Schümann from Germany, triple Olympic Champion and twice winner of the America's Cup (with Alinghi), teamed up to create a new team - ALL4ONE.

The team is based on the experience of America's Cup winners and Olympic Gold medallists, as well as on the ambition of young upcoming talents, building an international team with strong roots from Europe, including sailors from France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Netherlands and Italy.

Driven by common values and excellence in sailing, ALL4ONE has the goal to take up the most challenging and demanding achievements of international team sailing, including the America's Cup.

In a few months only, ALL4ONE has managed to reach the level of the top teams and convinced significant sponsors:

- 3 times on the podium of the Audi MedCup 2010 (5 stages)

- 3rd of Louis Vuitton Trophy - La Maddalena 2010

- 5th of Louis Vuitton Trophy - Auckland 2010

- 5th of Louis Vuitton Trophy - Nice 2009


ALL4ONE is supported by French Television Group Canal+ since the French-German team was launched, which has made it possible to get a significant media coverage for the team and its sponsors: each of the 96 racing days this year have been supported by the broadcast of a daily and dedicated 5 minutes programme, allowing the public to meet with ALL4ONE's team members on a regular basis in order to share their daily life. The programmes are now broadcast as well on the web site www.canalplus.fr since August, as part of the same deal.

While AC72 cats were fast, they difficult to control, so Oracle partnered with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way. If you watched videos of the AC72s racing in the 34th America’s Cup (2013), you’re familiar with the mind-boggling speeds that are possible when wingsail-powered catamarans switch from displacement sailing to foiling mode. While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
