Red Bull Youth America's Cup will be held in San Francisco from September 1st to the 4th 2013. After the America’s Cup World Series, which took place in Naples, Italy from April 18th to 21st the Youth America’s Cup is the next big event for Energy Team. In this competition, with 10 teams from eight different countries participating, France will be represented by a youth crew all under the age of 25, taking the helm of the Peyron brothers’ AC45. After establishing a financial and operational partnership with Next World Group, an investment firm with a European background based in San Francisco, the youth crew has officially become Next World Energy.

This decision by Next World Group shows above all their commitment to supporting a young team of athletes with a lot of potential, and their participation in a competition where the power of teamwork mixes with the virtues of an eco-friendly and high-tech sport. Won over by the values conveyed by this team sport, but also by the youthful and innovative nature of this forward-looking project, Next World Group is not only providing financial and logistical support, but also with operations and relations with local contacts. These are major factors in ensuring the team’s success, and provides the investment firm an opportunity to experience the preparation for the competition from the inside out.

The team representing France at the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup will be led by Charles Hainneville, vice-champion of the 2012 Youth World Championship in F18, and selected with the support of the French Sailing Federation and Yacht Club of France. He will be assisted by the wing trimmer Antoine Lauriot-Prévost, Romain and Valentin Bellet, Hubert Savatier, Arthur Ponroy and Paul Dagault. In this fall’s competition in San Francisco, the youth team will be accompanied by the adult Energy Team and members of the French Sailing Federation in every step of their preparation. Training began in Naples where the youth crew completed a solid training program aboard the AC45 with Energy Team.

Quotes:

Sébastien Lépinard, CEO Next World Group: 'A lot of the values of Next World Group are represented in the Youth America’s Cup: technology, performance, environmental well-being, team spirit, youthfulness, international competition, etc. Many of these elements are indeed quite simply the key values of our time. But looking beyond this similarity, it is what we can offer as an operational partner and not merely as a financial backer that convinced us to get involved. This is, in fact, our way of doing things in all of our business activities at Next World Group. Experiencing the project from the inside and actively contributing to the success is our reward.'

Bruno Peyron, CEO Energy Team: 'We are committed to our support for this team of young, talented sailors in the Youth America's Cup. This commitment expresses the idea at the heart of our project to pass something on.. We are pleased to welcome aboard Next World Group in this exciting challenge, which gives an idea of the sort of development program that I am increasingly keen to promote. Based in San Francisco and already involved in setting up the Energy Team Bay Area Supporters since last summer, they will be a valuable help to us with their local knowledge and contacts. I’d also like to thank Yann and all of the pro team, who carried out their job as coaches for the youngsters this week in Naples in a most enthusiastic way and willingly shared their skills.'
