Team Player, Physically Strong, Professional Attitude, 18-24 years old. Do you fit these criteria?


We are recruiting a new team to represent Sweden at the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, and you might be just what we’re looking for.


The Red Bull Youth America’s Cup will bring the best national youth teams to Bermuda for racing in 2017 during the 35th America’s Cup. Six youth crews will compete in Bermuda through their affiliation with current America’s Cup teams, alongside up to 10 additional teams.


All teams will race in a Qualifying Series to determine the top eight who will face off in two days of fleet racing scheduled during the week between the America’s Cup Finals. All racing in Bermuda will be in the same one-design AC45F foiling catamarans the America’s Cup teams compete with in the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series.


We are looking to recruit a mix of sailors with extensive technical knowledge of high performance sailing, together with young athletes who have the physical strength to crew these boats.


The sailors will not be compensated financially, but will gain an incredible experience and the opportunity to learn from members of the Artemis Racing America’s Cup team including Olympic champions Fredrik Loof, Nathan Outteridge, Paul Goodison and Iain Percy.


The event itself aims to provide a pathway into the America’s Cup, and has already delivered great success. The inaugural Red Bull Youth America’s Cup champion was a Kiwi team skippered by Peter Burling, who is now the helmsman of Emirates Team New Zealand.


Luke Parkinson represented Australia in the last Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, before going on to win the Volvo Ocean Race with Abu Dhabi, and is now racing for Artemis Racing in the 35th America’s Cup.


The trials for the Swedish Youth team will take place during spring and summer 2016 and the final team will train together in Sweden and Bermuda, as well as compete in the the GC32 Racing Tour as part of the ‘Gunvor Sailing’ team.



All crew must be at least 19 years of age and under 25 years of age on December 31, 2017, and must hold a valid Swedish passport.
