For the first ever Red Bull Youth Americas Cup Regatta in September 2013 a group of New Zealand's top sailors have an opportunity to compete - and they need your support to help them win it for New Zealand.

Led by 22 year old two time Olympian Peter Burling and his 23 year old sailing partner Blair Tuke, this team of seven sailors represent the NZL Sailing Team and Emirates Team New Zealand. Racing will take place in the same high performance, wing sailed AC45 catamarans that are used in the Americas Cup World Series.

These sailors are the future of sailing, driving the sport forward to a faster new era.

'I'm really confident that we have a great group of guys together' says Burling. 'We had the bonus of some early training time on Emirates Team New Zealand's AC45 catamaran which is invaluable.'

The NZL Sailing team with Emirates Team New Zealand is...

Peter Burling – Skipper
Blair Tuke – Tactician
Andy Maloney
Jono Spurdle
Jason Saunders
Guy Endean
Sam Meech

'We need to raise $50,000 to help us get there' says Blair Tuke - the money will go directly into funding their campaign costs. 'People can donate at Thrillpledge.com - they can become part of the team by having their name on our boat and wearing our supporter t-shirts.'

This is the first time that young, talented sailors have had a clear pathway towards competing for one of the most prestigious trophies in sport. The Red Bull Youth Americas Cup opens the door for young sailors to gain the experience they need to contribute to a cup team.

The regatta itself will take place from 1-4 September 2013 in San Francisco during the break between the end of the Louis Vuitton cup, and start of the 2013 Americas Cup Finals. Every sailor in the Red Bull Youth Americas Cup will be aged 19-24. Ten teams from eight countries have qualified.

The support of Emirates Team New Zealand provides this automatic entry to the 2013 Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, submitted by Yachting New Zealand, hence the team is known as the NZL Sailing Team with Emirates Team New Zealand.
