Dutchsail move forward to the 36th America's Cup

11 February 2019

After presenting their challenge and a few key people on January 23rd, the DutchSail make another important step in building their team for the 36th America’s Cup in 2021.

 

Two-time America’s Cup winner and DutchSail Team Principal Simeon Tienpont announced Dutch businessman Eelco Blok as Managing Director.

 

“Eelco is the right man in the right spot and definitely at the right moment. He was the one and only person on our short list and we see it as a major leap forward in the further development of our campaign.” Said Tienpont.

 

Blok is a well known and experienced businessman, having been the head of 9 different companies and  CEO of the Dutch landline and mobile telecommunications company KPN for the last seven years. He is also a keen sailor having run his own competitive Melges 24 campaign for several years.

 

“I am very enthusiastic about the progress the team has made so far and I am seriously impressed by the line-up of the top-level institutions and people involved. Yes we face a backlog, but believe me that brings the best out of me and I feel also supported by the first reactions.” Said Eelco Blok
