A squad of Australia’s top performing sailing women and youth athletes will be revealed by Team Australia Challenge Patron John Bertrand AO to spearhead the nations return to the America’s Cup in the Youth and Puig Women’s Regattas in 2024.
Among the squad are medal winning Olympians, world ranked sailors, multi-national and international champions in fleet and match racing and SailGP trailblazers.
A gruelling selection process over many months, with leading Australian sailing luminaries participating on the selection panel, has reduced a field of over 130 applicants from across the country to the new sailing squad.
Several athletes qualify for both the youth and women’s campaigns delivering a dynamic pool for the final teams to challenge in the 12 nation competitions in Barcelona next September and October.
The squad will be at the launch and named online after at www.teamaustraliachallenge.org.
About: Team Australia Challenge is the official entry in the 37th America’s Cup Youth and the first Puig Women’s Regattas. The Campaign is a not-or-profit entity managed by a volunteer board and has John Bertrand AO and John Winning as Patrons. It is supported by the Australian Sports Foundation.
