VIDEO: Thanks for the invite, but how do we pay for it?

Published on May 9th, 2013

A group of New Zealand’s top youth sailors have an opportunity to compete at the first ever Youth Americas Cup Regatta in September 2013 – and they need your help to make it a success.

Led by 22 year old two time Olympian Peter Burling and his 23 year old sailing partner Blair Tuke, this team of seven sailors represent the NZL Sailing Team and Emirates Team New Zealand. Racing will take place in the same high performance, wing sailed AC45 catamarans that are used in the Americas Cup World Series.

These young men are the future of sailing, driving the sport forward to a faster new era.

Pledge to this project and help this talented group of youngsters carve a new pathway to sailing at the Americas cup.

Total pledges can go over the targeted amount of $50,000, and if you can’t make a pledge or donation – please help us spread the word and reach other people who can contribute.
