The only new team to take up the challenge of the oldest trophy in sport, Team Korea will bring to bear all of the technological resources of one of the most dynamic countries in Asia. The team was founded by Kim Dong-Young, an accomplished sailor and the organizer of one of the biggest prize money sailing events in the world, The Korea Match Cup. Young has realistic ambitions for this first effort, calling it a learning experience with the aim of constant improvement.
For our brand Sail Racing, this means possibilities to use the team as a base to develop new technologies, materials and pattern constructions for future innovations. To be presented with a team in the prestigious Americas Cup is an important step for us when building our brand as most suitable for athletes in extreme speed conditions.
