We are through to the Grand Final of the Youth Foiling Gold Cup!
You can imagine how incredibly proud, pleased and excited we are.
In just January of this year, we launched our Clean Sailors Youth Racing Team - THE champion youth team with a heart for our ocean.
Our sailors CJ Perez (18), Jann Schüpbach (21) and Lukas Hesse (23) met in person just a month later, as individual champions: they have never trained together before, they had never sailed together before, they had never raced together before.
A week later, CJ, Jann and Lukas left as the true definition of Team, and have gone on to win the Bacardi Cup Invitational Regatta and have pushed through four acts of the Gold Cup circuit.
This week, they took third place on the podium, guaranteeing their attendance at the Grand Final in November.
It's been a mammoth 8 months, and there is more to come.
For now, huge thanks to our Clean Sailors Youth Racing Team sponsors, and to 69F for the awesome boat, events, logistics and media - we'll be back shortly for the big finale! 👊 💪
