Cast your mind back to 1993. The National Party was in power and Jim Bolger was the Prime Minister. Sean Fitzpatrick took the All Blacks to victory in Britain. The Mutton Birds had the album of the year. And Emirates Team New Zealand was born ready to take on the sailing world.
Alongside Emirates Team NZ was Portacom supporting them as an official supplier, cheering them on, celebrating their highs and commiserating the lows. For 30 years, Portacom has supported New Zealand's national sailing team and we are proud to do it again for their 2024 Barcelona campaign.
When you think of the America's Cup, you think Emirates Team New Zealand. When you think Portacom, you think, well, Portacom. Now you can think about Emirates Team New Zealand and Portacom.
Emirates Team New Zealand was founded in 1993 and from the very beginning Portacom has been there. We have supported the team as an Official Supplier through the highs and lows because we believe in them and believe in Kiwi innovation. Innovation is at the heart of both Emirates Team New Zealand and Portacom's success.
You could say, Portacom has been helping the team fly since 1993.
Emirates Team New Zealand is in Barcelona preparing for the 2024 America's Cup. Yet they will be back in the new year for more practice. We will be cheering them on and we hope that you will join us making as much noise as possible about our favourite sailing team.
As a valued customer of Portacom, there are some once in a lifetime opportunities we can offer you including the chance to get out on a Chase Boat for the day and watch the team train. Or a tour of the facility in Auckland. Or even a shirt signed by the team. It is thrilling and only open to a few.
So why not fly with us?
For the chase boat experience, we get very, very short notice (usually less than 24 hours) so make sure you are ready and have plans in place. We will call you to let you know if you have won any of the experiences and the details.
While you are waiting for the call, why not follow our social media platforms LinkedIN | Facebook | Instagram as we support Emirates Team New Zealand to defend the America's Cup in 2024. #helpingteamnzfly #comeflywithus
