Recent Alinghi team mates, Simon Daubney, Warwick Fleury, Murray Jones and Dean Phipps are to be inducted into the America's Cup Hall of Fame on 17 September along with Mike Drummond, currently design director for BMW Oracle, and the AC Hall of Fame founder himself, Halsey Herreshoff, who was one of the most active AC sailors during the 12-Metre era.

Daubney (headsail trimmer) and Fleury (mainsail trimmer) have trimmed America's Cup yachts together since 1987. Phipps (runner/pitman) has competed in eight America's Cup campaigns, starting in 1983 and has an offshore pedigree second to few and Murray Jones (strategist) joined Team New Zealand in 1995 fresh from the Olympics. All have won four America's Cups consecutively, starting with Team New Zealand in 1995 and 2000 and then for Switzerland's Alinghi in 2003 and 2007. The four join their long time crew mate, tactician, Brad Butterworth, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004.

The 17th induction ceremony will be hosted at the New York Yacht Club's Harbour Court in Newport, Rhode Island, in conjunction with the America's Cup 12-Metre Era Reunion weekend.

About the America's Cup Hall of Fame

The America's Cup Hall of Fame was created to honour the challengers, defenders, and legendary personages of the world's most distinguished sporting competition. The present prototype Hall of Fame is located in an historic building on the grounds of the former Herreshoff Manufacturing Company in Bristol, Rhode Island, where yachts were constructed for eight consecutive America's Cup defences between 1893 and 1934.

Since the first induction ceremony in 1993, over 70 legends of the Cup have been selected for membership in the Hall of Fame. Candidates eligible for consideration include skippers, afterguard members, crew, designers, builders, organisers, syndicate leaders, managers, supporters, chroniclers, race managers, and other individuals of merit. Each nominee is judged on the basis of outstanding ability, international recognition, character, performance, and contributions to the America’s Cup.

The America's Cup Hall of Fame is dedicated to preserving and demonstrating the influence of America's Cup competition, for the purpose of education and the inspiration of excellence in the world of yachting.
