Why did Coderus and INEOS TEAM UK win Tech Team of the Year?
Founded in 1851, America’s Cup is a global sailing competition between sailing yachts where the winner wins a trophy called America’s Cup.
Over the last 6 years, Coderus has been working with Great Britain’s Royal Yacht Squadron (Currently INEOS TEAM UK – rebranded recently to INEOS Britannia) across the 35th and 36th America’s Cup Challenges.
During this time, we helped develop a Tactical Application, which utilises IoT infrastructure and delivers race-critical information clearly and quickly to the onboard team.
“We were desperate for an app which could act as a virtual seventh crew member and become central to our decision-making process during the race, providing Ben (Ainslie) and I with the data that we really need to gain a competitive advantage. We’ve had great support from Coderus through all stages of the development, from design, build and now refinement out on the water.”Tactician and Olympic Gold Medallist, Giles Scott
We are proud to say that the work we have done has paid off, not only giving the team a competitive advantage in the competition but we have now won an award for our efforts

“With the work that Coderus have done for us, we’ve achieved roughly a 10x fold increase in productivity. It’s become truly an essential piece of what we do.”Nick Holroyd, Chief Designer INEOS TEAM UK
