The Spirit of Youth Sailing in America
Dear America,

This post can’t express how much this opportunity has meant to us. We sailed our hardest and it was an honor to duel with the very best from all around the globe. We couldn’t have made it to the starting line without you.

Stay classy, San Francisco. We’ll be back.

May the force be with each and every one of you.

We are the American Youth Sailing Force (The Force) competing in the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup. More than just sailors, this self-managed team comes from all walks of life including having served as riggers, boat-builders and sail-makers. The Force aims to prove that, with steady determination, hard work and passion, anyone can compete on the elite international sailing circuit. Charting a course to inspire the next generation of young American sailors, The Force conducts community outreach with established organizations to demonstrate the use of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the love of sailing. Meet the San Francisco’s Youth America’s Cup Team – The Force.

RBYAC_logo_postThe Red Bull Youth America’s Cup is an international sailing competition between 10 teams, each representing their home country, with all team members being between 19 and 24 years old. The event will take place September 1 to 4, 2013 in San Francisco Bay. The teams will be sailing the same 45-foot, wing sailed catamarans currently being sailed by the elite America’s Cup teams competing in the America’s Cup World Series. Not only does this event represent the pinnacle of high performance youth sailing in the world, but it will also form a clear pathway for the next generation of the world’s top sailors into the America’s Cup.
