Dong Young-Kim is the Team President, or Young as he is known. He runs the Korea Match Cup, under the auspices of the Sail Korea Yacht Club, who have made the official AC entry.
More about the White Tiger
Legend has it that there are four guardian gods in Korea. They are the Chungryong (blue dragon), Hyunmu (turtle-snake), Jujak (phoenix) and Baekho (white tiger). Unlike the first three creatures, who are fictional, the Baekho is the one and only real animal and thus the King of all beasts. For that reason, white tigers have been highly respected and revered in Korea for thousands of years.
An official press release from White Tiger Challenger will follow.
