Following a short break after the completion of ISAF Sailing World Cup Mallorca in Spain, the US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider will be in action again April 21-26 at the upcoming World Cup event in Hyères, France. A strong American contingent of over 30 athletes will compete in nine Olympic classes.

Laser Radial athlete Paige Railey (Clearwater, Fla.) will return to the international circuit after winning her last event, ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami. She will be joined by fellow 2014 Miami medalists Stu McNay (Providence, R.I.) and Dave Hughes (Miami, Fla.) in the 470 class, and Brad Funk (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) and Trevor Burd (Marblehead, Mass.) in the 49er. The women’s 470 team of Annie Haeger (East Troy, Wisc.) and Briana Provancha (San Diego, Calif.) narrowly missed making the podium in Hyères a year ago, and will look to break through at this edition of the event. Reigning Nacra 17 North American champions Sarah Newberry (Miami, Fla.) and John Casey (Longwood, Fla.) will be on hand as well. In the men’s singlehanded classes, two-time College Sailor of the Year and US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider laser athlete Charlie Buckingham (Newport Beach, Calif.) and 2012 ISAF Sailing World Cup overall winner Caleb Paine in the Finn class will look to improve on promising performances in Mallorca.
