No cheating, plenty of man love, and a team that’s so into it that they yell ‘Fuck, Yeah!” after nailing a start and sailing off to a Red Bull Youth AC Race 1 win. It’s everything you wished the America’s Cup was, and Sam Greenfield gives us the American Youth Sailing Force highlight reel above.
While Pete Burling’s Sailing With ETNZ team has a nice 7-point lead going into the final day of action, we find it frightfully easy to cheer for a US team of real people actually doing well who got to the starting line by cutting checks from their savings account and learning how to hustle. Genny T grabbed a few of the nippers and put ‘em on camera as well; check it here.
See if America (or Australia, who finally has their train rolling) can pull it off during today’s final races live on YouTube if you are in Nigeria and if ACTV can get their act together, here on TVNZ if you are a flightless bird, or here on ServusTV if you can’t figure out the proxy server system or you don’t mind German.

Sam Greenfield continues to bring us inside the American Youth Sailing Force’s Youth AC team with the video above. Check it out, and then have a look at Force fan Lisa Gentile’s excellent take on the young team below. Then go give them some much-needed sandwich and fuel money, and while you’re at it, follow their Instagram and Facebook pages. If there was ever an American AC team to throw your support behind, this is it.
At the moment their most stressful financial pressures are 1) a $300/per day fuel bill for their chase boat and 2) food. The 9 of them consume 60 eggs every day. That’s just the eggs. Last night I offered to donate eggs but that got me some weird looks. So help me help them the right way.
Their Red Bull Youth Race begins September 1. Please send fuel/food money now for the final push. Why? Because the next generation does have distinct potential for leadership. How will we respond to that fact?
