Land Rover BAR search for the next generation of British America’s Cup sailors

Following their success in Bermuda last June, where the British team were crowned Red Bull Youth America’s Cup Champions 2017, Land Rover BAR Academy is recruiting again to find and support talented young British sailors aged between 19-24 years old into professional sailing and ultimately the America’s Cup.

Since its launch 18 months ago, the Land Rover BAR Academy has proven its success as a pathway to the America’s Cup, not only winning the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, but progressing 22-year-old Neil Hunter through the Land Rover BAR Academy and into the senior Land Rover BAR team to become the youngest competitor in the 35th America’s Cup. The Land Rover BAR Academy also set new ground in the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup with 22-year-old Annabel Vose sailing as part of the team, the only female sailor to compete in Bermuda on AC45F foiling catamarans against 12 national teams each comprised of their nation’s best youth sailors.
