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?
