The door closed on the first phase of the American Youth Sailing Force (The Force) training program this past weekend with the final two days of AC45 training provided by Oracle Team USA (OTUSA). With OTUSA’s withdrawal of support, the team is on its own for next phase of training. The Force will be relying exclusively on the SL33 and a new physical fitness program to prepare themselves for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup.
The American Youth Sailing Force (The Force) is the San Francisco team representing the United States 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 by teaching Bay Area students to embrace science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the love of sailing.
