Kaenon Polarized: The Road to the Red Bull Youth America's Cup - 3
Tue, 2 Jul 2013
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.

Lead Kiwi contender for the RBYAC title and Olympic Silver Medalist Peter Burling?nid=111471 has been putting in time on the water with a mix of 49er training with Olympic and RBYAC crew Blair Tuke, along with moth sailing.
American and US Sailing Team member Charlie Buckingham?nid=111471 is headed north to San Francisco after a month of Laser and F18 training in Long Beach. There he will meet up with the rest of his RBYAC TEAM USA45, where they will now base for the rest of the summer until the Red Bull Youth America's Cup unfolds.
On the other side of the world, Kiwi Match Racing Champion, come-cat sailor Will Tiller?nid=111471 is back home in New Zealand making the most of the winter by doing some physical training … as he says, 'the Red Bull Youth America's Cup is all about getting stronger, fitter, faster.'
