19 May 2017

Harneys Fiduciary is supplier to Groupama Team France in the 35th America’s Cup, which will be held in Bermuda between 27 May – 27 June 2017. 

The America’s Cup is the oldest international sporting event and attracts top sailors worldwide in a fiercely competitive and exciting series. For the first time, it will be hosted in Bermuda, marking an historic occasion for the island. Groupama Team France will open the event with a challenge against defending champions Oracle Team USA. The United States has won the America’s Cup more times than any other country, including the longest winning streak in the history of sport between 1857-1983. 

Harneys is supplier to Groupama Team France, which is skippered by world renowned Franck Cammas. In total, 6 teams will compete for the Cup, hailing from Japan, New Zealand, Sweden, France, Great Britain and the USA. 

Lilla Zuill, Managing Partner of Zuill & Co, commented: “We are delighted to be supplier to Groupama Team France in this year’s America’s Cup. It is a momentous occasion for Bermuda which puts the island on the international stage, pays homage to our long maritime history, and will leave a lasting legacy on our economy. Our commitment to Bermuda extends beyond our full-service legal and fiduciary practice to making a positive impact to the island, and we look forward to being a part of this historic event.”
