Kaenon’s Road to the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup - features Charlie Buckingham, Peter Burling and Will Tiller Kaenon.com http://www.kaenon.com

Kaenon Polarized are backing three sailors involved in three teams in the Red Bull Youth America's Cup, to be sailed in San Francisco in August 2013, as a lead-in event to the 34th America's Cup.

The future is here. Speed, wings, foils and…the hottest kids on the planet have been handed the keys to the Ferrari’s … and earned the invitation to play!

How did this happen? What’s it like? How do they prepare? Kaenon Polarized is supporting American Charlie Buckingham and his USA45 team, Kiwi Olympic medalist Pete Burling, and top ranked Kiwi match racer Will Tiller and their teams as they transition and prepare for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup.

Champions in their own right, with long term Olympic and Match Racing goals temporarily derailed by the lure of the America’s Cup, Kaenon Polarized has teamed with the three skippers for a weekly, behind the scenes look at what it takes, how it’s going…the trials and the tribulations on 'The Road to the RBYAC.'

Today, photographer and videographer, John Navas was on the water and filed this gallery of images of Will Tiller, Charlie Buckingham and Peter Burling as they trained ahead of the Rd Bull Youth America's cup.
