French Youth Team - Season 1

TAKINGYHISTORY in just 17 months For the first time in the History of the America's Cup, young, talented sailors had a clear pathway towards competing for their country into one of the most prestigious trophies in sport. The Red Bull Youth America's Cup opened the door for young sailors from 19 to 24 to gain the experience they need to contribute to a Cup Team. Regattas took place in San Francisco, USA, in the high performance, wing-sailed AC45 catamarans, from September 1-4, 2013, during the heart of the 34th America's Cup racing season. FY Vincent Guého Everything started mid September 2010. We were the first team working on the Youth America's Cup project and we're very proud to have revealed the French sailors who flied the Next World Energy colors in September 2013 for what was : the SAILING'S PREMIER RACING EVENT for youth sailors.

When I was a youth sailor there wasn't a clear pathway to the Cup. But the Red Bull Youth America's Cup gave these guys a GREAT OPPORTUNITY, and the game's opened up to much wider participation. The youths' level of organization was impressive.
