We are delighted to announce that ‘Jono’ Macbeth will be speaking at the gala dinner on Wednesday 15th May in Cowes.
A three-times America’s Cup winner, New Zealand’s Jonathan ‘Jono’ Macbeth is the most successful and experienced America’s Cup (AC) sailor in the INEOS TEAM UK team. Jono’s Cup career started when he joined ‘Team New Zealand’ in 1997 ahead of their successful defense of the 31st America’s Cup in 2000. He moved across to BMW ORACLE Racing to campaign for the 33rd Cup in 2010 and claimed his second AC win in Valencia, Spain. Jono shared AC success alongside skipper, Ben Ainslie, as a grinder onboard winning 34th America’s Cup team, ORACLE TEAM USA. His relationship with Ben dates back to 2007, when they joined forces on-board Team New Zealand to win the Louis Vuitton Cup in Spain.
