Carlo Huisman on the bike with WhisperPower

02-07-2017

As previously mentioned, WhisperPower is a proud supporter of the Dutch America's Endeavour Youth Teams. Since our last update, the two young catamaran teams are now back in The Netherlands with an incredible experience to their names. During the America's Cup Bermuda, they took part in a youth sailing programme. The highlight of the trip was participating in a race which took place during the break of the final races between Emirates Team New Zealand and ORACLE TEAM USA in front of a vast, cheering crowd. The boat belonging to the America's Cup winning team, Team New Zealand, was full of new technology including the winches for the hydraulic system not being operated by hands but by legs. Pedal power generated from specially adapted bikes. And one of those cyclists responsible for ‘pedalling’ the winches was the only Dutchman in the America's Cup, Carlo Huisman. The youth teams had a meet and greet in Bermuda with Carlo himself and presented him with a WhisperPower cycling outfit. We can expect to hear a lot more about Carlo. As of this week, it has been made known that this autumn he will be joining the crew of Bouwe Bekking’s Team Brunel for the Volvo Ocean Race. On the 7 tenders of the Finnish brand XO Boats, the official media boats of the America's Cup did not have to be cycled to generate power. They are equipped with a WhisperPower complete power system.
