The trophy for the inaugural Puig Women's America's Cup, was presented this morning by Puig at the Fundació Joan Miró. The Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola was commissioned to design and shape the trophy that the winning team of the Puig Women's America's Cup will receive on 13 October.

For this, Urquiola has used “a simple, geometric figure, like a cylinder, without decorative elements or a base, which at one point opens up like a large sail struck by the wind".

Made of silver, with a height of 58 cm and weighing about 5 kg, its interior hides a rose gold effect. The finishing has been done by means of an exhaustive chiseling in the widest part of the cylinder. Unlike the original America's Cup trophy - designed by Edmund Cotterill and crafted by Robert Garrard in 1848 - the Puig Women's America's Cup lacks handles so that "the winning team can embrace it in its full form", according to the designer.

The inaugural Women’s America’s Cup will take place in Barcelona from the 5th to the 13th of October as a central part of the 37th America's Cup. The design of the logo that will be the identity of the Puig Women’s America’s Cup was also unveiled with the presentation attended by Grant Dalton, CEO America's Cup Event; Marc Puig, Executive Chairman of Puig; Abby Ehler, offshore sailor and Puig Women's America's Cup Event Co-Ordinator; Silvia Mas, sailing team member of Sail Team BCN, the Spanish entrant, and Patricia Urquiola.

The Puig Women's America's Cup is shaping up to be one of the highlights of the 37th America's Cup. Joining the six established official participants representing New Zealand, Great Britain, Italy, Switzerland, the United States and France are six new teams from Spain, the Netherlands, Canada, Germany, Sweden and Australia. The addition of new entrants and countries further enhances the anticipation of an extraordinary sailing experience.

Puig, a global Premium Beauty company, is collaborating in the 37th Edition of the America's Cup, as a global sponsor of the competition and as a Naming Partner of the first women's specific race in the history of the America's Cup. A commitment that reflects its local identity as a global company based in the city of Barcelona and its rich nautical heritage. With a long tradition of sponsorship within the world of sailing, Puig is proud to support this historic competition, while promoting and reinforcing the presence and excellence of women in the sport.
