During this event, several videos were projected to demonstrate the commitment of the Spanish brand with the celebration of the America's Cup. The most surprising was the one that introduced the spectators to the E23 and its challenge, which consisted of a time trial, with Grant Dalton captaining the first E23 unit, to overcome two laps of a 3-mile circuit along the coast of Barcelona, consuming the minimum of battery power.

With a spectacular result of 47.15 points from the sum of the time invested (16min 15sec) and the percentage of battery consumed (31%), the new E23 Challenge will be the challenge to beat for future owners of the model who want to test their skills at the controls of the E23 in the various events that the brand will organize around the world.

And as a final surprise, and great news for De Antonio Yachts, Grant Dalton announced at the close of the event, that the D50 Coupé model of the shipyard based in Barcelona, will be the Committee Boat of 37th edition of the Louis Vuitton America's Cup regattas.
