The skipper of the Dutch team DutchSail Simeon Tienpont announced today that the team will not be able to participate in the 36th draw of the America’s Cup.
The reason for the refusal DutchSail team from participation is not a mystery. The initiative group was not able to provide the project with necessary funding, because for preparation and participation in the America’s Cup needed, as you know, many tens of millions of dollars.
“We are all extremely disappointed, said Tienpont. – We, despite all our attempts, failed to collect enough money for the project – and, most importantly, to find a title sponsor”.
Unlike the Dutch, yacht club California long beach yesterday confirmed that it continues the preparation of his team’s Stars+Stripes USA to participate in the America’s Cup, the draw will take place, we will remind, in 2021.
Thus, the glove of the present holders of the Cup, Emirates Team New Zealand – ready to drop four teams. In addition to Stars+Stripes USA is “the notebook” bidder – Italian Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli, the British INEOS UK Team and another team from the United States American Magic NYYC.
