According to an old saying beyond every peak, another lie, and today DeVos, Fauth, and YC of New York, announced their intent to challenge for 2021 36th America’s Cup.
As Emirates Team vision for the upcoming edition came into stronger focus after winning in Bermuda last season in June, DeVos, Fauth and Terry Hutchinson the skipper approached the YC of New York to partner. “It is one more step toward what we can say is the representative of the sport,” in a conference call said Hutchinson.
“It is about worth of work for six months, and the beginning of a lot more to come, but today I look at our team and I believe, we a great infrastructure for sailing in place and a program that is being operated at an extremely high level for the five years better part.”
As far as the involvement of the New York YC is concerned, it is early days and they are more in a supportive role. Commodore Phil Lotz said, “We expect few of the membership to be included in the syndicate. We are not going to ask the club for support. We will thoroughly enjoy association of a well thought out and promising challenge. We are also happy about the Protocol, about which the announcement has been made so far. We are involved in this because we believe that the New Zealand and the challenger are moving in the right direction.”
