Omega and Sailing
The deep historical connection between Omega and the ocean is undisputed. Omega has launched the world’s first diving watch and the only watch ever certified by the Ocean Observatory. For a long time, Omega watches have always been the first choice of some of the greatest navigators.
The connection between sailing and timing can be traced back to the early days when sailors used high-precision marine astronomical clocks for navigation. Even with the emergence of new technologies such as GPS, Omega’s rugged and waterproof watches are still popular.
As a heritage closely linked to the ocean, Omega has been providing sponsorship and timing services for the world’s top sailors and sailing events. After the New Zealand Chiefs (ETNZ) successfully won the America’s Cup in 1995, Omega set the designated time for the America’s Cup regatta in Auckland, New Zealand in 2000 and 2003.
Not only that, Omega also provides timing services for the thrilling Extreme Sailing Series ™ and the Artemis Atlantic Challenge. The Artemis Atlantic Challenge is a single-handed speedboat race across the North Atlantic, from east to west, all the way from Plymouth, England, to the United States. In 2010, Omega also sponsored the Auckland Sailing Challenge.
Omega also has a long-term relationship with Ellen MacArthur, a women’s solo regatta. On February 7, 2005, she broke the voyage record of a single person traveling the world with 71 days, 14:18, 33 seconds, and it was Omega Timekeeping Service that recorded every exciting second for her. In recognition of her outstanding achievements, Alan MacArthur was personally awarded the title of ‘Lady Jazz’ by Queen Elizabeth II. In 2008, Allen was also awarded the Légiond’Honneur by the then French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
New Zealand Chiefs and 2013 America’s Cup
Omega is very proud of the cooperation with the New Zealand Chiefs. As early as 1995 when Sir Peter Blake led the New Zealand Chiefs to the Americas Cup, the two sides began cooperation. The New Zealand Chiefs easily won the championship in that year’s game and won again in 2000. Sir Peter ended his professional sailing career after this race, but Omega has been one of the main sponsors, continuing to support his Blakespeditions project until his untimely death in 2001.
Since then, Omega has continued to support the New Zealand Chiefs and Captain Dean Barker, and look forward to their new multi-hull launch in the San Francisco top sailing competition in 2013 to launch another impact on the trophy.
New Zealand Chiefs
The New Zealand Chiefs are one of the most prestigious sailing teams in the world. As the two-time America’s Cup winner, the team is currently shifting most of its energy to the new high-speed, exciting multi-hull new sports field. Led by Executive Director Grant Dalton and Captain Dean Buck, the New Zealand Chiefs will carry the hope of the entire island nation and fight hard at the America’s Cup Regatta in San Francisco.
In 2011, the New Zealand Chiefs entered the field of multihulls and won the second place in the 2011-2012 America’s Cup World Series. This result has witnessed the New Zealand Chiefs’ efforts to shift from monohull to multihull Work hard. In 2010, the New Zealand Chiefs participated in the monohull competition in the last year. They have won three times in the Louis Vuitton Cup (‘American Cup’ qualifier) (Auckland in February, La Maddalena in May, November Dubai Station).

Dean Buck had participated in rubber boat races in the early years, during which he won several international championships and world youth championships. His first Copa America experience was invited to assist the New Zealand team in preparing for the 1995 game, and he soon gained fame in the Copa America.
