Objective Australia Youth America’s Cup Campaign Launch to be held on Saturday 23 March at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club.

Objective Australia, the Australian team competing for the inaugural Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, will have its official campaign launch at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club (RPAYC) Newport on Saturday 23 March at 5:30pm. Objective Australia is the first Australian team compete for America’s Cup success in over a decade and will be competing against seven other nations in September 2013.

The Objective Australia team is comprised of the cream of 19-25 year old Australian sailors, many of whom are campaigning towards the 2016 Olympics and other major sailing championships. The nine member Team features RPAYC members Jason Waterhouse (NSW) and Josh McKnight (NSW), along with Tom Burton (NSW), Jordan Reece (NSW), Oliver Tweddell (VIC), Luke Parkinson (WA), Keiran Searle (NSW), James Wierzbowski (VIC) and Ted Hackney (NSW).

The team qualified for this event in recent trials conducted in San Francisco.

Tony Walls, Team Principal, Objective Australia said, 'Objective Australia’s selection as the National team for Youth America’s Cup confirms that Australia has some of the most talented young sailing athletes in the world. We are thrilled to be able to provide them with the opportunity to pursue their dreams and compete for the inaugural Red Bull Youth America’s Cup.'

The Objective Australia Launch will feature our sailing athletes and the team behind the team; presenting their approach to America’s Cup success; discussing their insights into the professionalism, skills and the drive required to sail one of the most exciting and challenging sailing machines – the AC45.
