.
U.S. Youth Multihull Championship, the Multihull Qualifier for 2012 Youth Worlds Team, will take place in Key Largo, Florida in January 2012

With the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil only four years away, now is the time for youth sailors to consider a campaign in a high-performance multihull. Although the boat has not yet been selected, US Sailing’s Olympic Sailing Program has already begun development of this discipline in the U.S. through its US Sailing Development Team (USSDT). The 2012 USSDT includes the 2012 Youth Worlds Team, and selection for the multihull representatives will take place at the 2012 Tradewinds Regatta, scheduled for January 13-15, 2012 in Key Largo, Fla. The regatta will utilize the F16 multihull for youth sailors. The Notice of Race and registration information is posted: http://www.catsailor.com/Tradewinds/TradewindsISAF_NORs2012.html.

'Youth development in Olympic classes and potential classes is the foundation of the Olympic Sailing Committee’s mission to win medals at Olympic Games,' said US Sailing’s High Performance Director/Head Coach Kenneth Andreasen (Tampa, Fla.). 'Bringing the multihull back into the 2016 Games opens up a lot of opportunities for youth sailors, and we want to make sure any sailor who is interested in a serious Olympic campaign gets the on our radar for coaching and training.'

The top open team, who meets all the eligibility requirements (age and nationality), will be entitled to represent the United States at the 42nd ISAF World Championship 2012 to be held in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland. The top two eligible mixed (male and female) teams will qualify for the 2012 US Sailing Development Team.

Multihull training camps are planned for 2012 to help guide interested sailors. Please contact development(at)ussailing.org for more information.

Athletes will be selected for the Youth Development Team in the following classes: Radial girls, Radial boys, 29er, I420 girls, I420 boys, Techno 293 girls and Techno 293 boy at the U.S. ISAF Youth Worlds Qualifier, scheduled for January 14-16, 2012 at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, in Long Beach, Calif.
