TSI joins the American Magic team

Publish date:

TSI Incorporated, a manufacturer of precision measurement instruments, is a team partner with New York Yacht Club American Magic, one of the United States challengers for the 36 America’s Cup. The cup will be defended in Auckland, New Zealand, in March 2021.

“We are proud to have TSI join American Magic and to have their support as we work to win back the Cup for the United States,” Terry Hutchinson, skipper and executive director of American Magic, said in a statement. “TSI and American Magic share many values, including a commitment to developing high-performance systems driven by accurate measurement and cutting-edge data analysis. Our two teams work hard every day to solve problems and create solutions that have never been seen before, and to so me, this is a natural partnership.”

Among TSI’s list of projects are being part of the Viking 1 and 2 spacecraft that were sent to Mars in the early 1970s. The company has worked in environmental studies, healthcare, HVAC, manufacturing, occupational health and safety.

“TSI is excited to partner with the American Magic team and support their quest to regain the Cup,” Dr. Tom Kennedy, president of TSI Incorporated, said in the statement. “Our expertise in fluid mechanics will help optimize the performance of the American Magic boats. Additionally, our participation in nanoparticle research gives us a unique perspective into new and advanced materials for the sailing industry.”

American Magic will compete at its first regatta, the America’s Cup World Series Sardinia (April 23-26, 2020) in Italy. Competing teams will relocate to New Zealand in mid-to-late 2020 and participate in the Challenger finals, the Prada Cup, in early 2021 in Auckland. The winner of that series will challenge Emirates Team New Zealand for the America’s Cup.
