SOFTBANK TEAM JAPAN
Led by winning America’s Cup skipper Dean Barker along with veteran Japanese sailor Kazuhiko “Fuku” Sofuku and supported by SoftBank Corp. and Kansai Yacht Club, SoftBank Team Japan is made up of a multi-national collaboration of sailors, boatbuilders, and support crew.
SoftBank Team Japan were well aware of Marlow’s grand prix pedigree and came to us to supply their technical running rigging for their AC45F during the ACWS and to help with the specifications for their developing race boat due to be launched late 2016. The partnership is beneficial for both and SoftBank Team Japan continues to move up the results table in the ACWS. We wish them continued success moving into the Louis Vuitton cup in Bermuda in 2017.
