the dutch are coming

Today, under the leadership of Simeon Tienpont, the initiator of Team The Netherlands, the symbolic opening of his Team Base took place in the Topsportcentrum Scheveningen. This in preparation for a Dutch participation in the 36th America’s Cup.

The America’s Cup is now 167 years old and is the first time that the Netherlands participates.

Simeon Tienpont is the first to take the floor and tells us that the timing is perfect for a Dutch project in the America’s Cup. Technical knowledge and various lines of research become the building blocks for this syndicate.

The construction of the AC75 sailboat and the process of the team during the run-up to the World Series will generate a huge amount of information that is also of high social value. It is a great opportunity for BV Nederland.
