Sail-World.com : Volvo Ocean Race: Oakcliff All American Offshore Team under 30yrs crew
Volvo Ocean Race: Oakcliff All American Offshore Team under 30yrs crew


'One of the Oakcliff Sailing team competing in the 2011 Trans Atlantic Race'   

Oakcliff All American Offshore Team have announced that they are the core of the Turkish backed Volvo Ocean Race Team.

Charlie Enright and Mark Towill have been confirmed and they are working quickly to put together the rest of the team who will also be under 30.

Oakcliff Sailing -    
Based in Oyster Bay, New York, Oakcliff will be chatting with Charlie and Mark when they return to the United States next week. Part of that conversation will be with another group of Oakcliff SapGrads who are busy planning a 2015 campaign for the Transatlantic Ocean Race and the Atlantic Ocean Racing Series. Charlie and Mark led the Oakcliff AAOT team that was supported by Oakcliff and USMMA-SF in the same series of races.

Oakcliff Sailing has been building American Leaders through sailing for 4 short years. One of its many long-term goals was to have graduates in the America’s Cup and the Volvo. SapGrad Solomon Krevans raced in the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup and now there are Oakcliff sailors headed to the Volvo.

Executive Director Dawn Riley comments, 'I always say set your goals very high, anything less is just a ‘to-do list’. Well we set our goals very high and Oakcliff Graduates are conquering! Congratulations Team!'

Oakcliff is the only comprehensive training and coaching center in the world. Oakcliff’s signature Sapling and Acorn programs produce graduates who are complete sailors capable of sailing in any position, fixing every aspect of a boat and managing a business.

Applications are currently being taken for Oakcliff's 2014 Acorn and Sapling program

Oakcliff is a non-profit organization open to sailors of all ages and levels. Oakcliff’s rigorous curriculum trains sailors in match and fleet racing, inshore and offshore, fully crewed and short handed as well as providing access to historically significant classic yachts. Oakcliff was also named the first US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider Training center with 8 of each of the Olympic Classes: Nacra 17, 49er and 49er FX.
