'This team represents the best of youth sailing in the U.S.,' said US Sailing’s High Performance Director/Head Coach Kenneth Andreasen (Tampa, Fla.). 'The majority of our 2011 Team aged-out of youth competition and transitioned to our Olympic development classes. Having a structured pipeline is crucial to our future medal potential, and I am truly excited at the level of talent coming up the ranks.
