SoftBank Team Japan chooses Harken
SoftBank Team Japan has selected Harken as an Official Supplier of winch packages, blocks, and key hydraulic components in its campaign for the 35th America’s Cup.
Led by America’s Cup skipper Dean Barker and General Manager and bowman Kazuhiko “Fuku” Sofuka, the Softbank Team is gaining a reputation for innovative thinking.
They were the first to perfect the foiling tack on boats of this size – a skill critical in an environment where ‘all foil all the time’ is the Holy Grail.
Harken is proud and honored to be working with this talented and dedicated group of sailors.
