November 4, 2015--Portsmouth, R.I. – US Sailing has named thirteen athletes to its 2015 ISAF Youth World Championships Team. The premier youth event in international sailing, ISAF Youth Worlds represents the highest level of competition for the next regeneration of American talent. Langkawi, Malaysia will host the 2015 edition of the regatta from December 27, 2015 to January 3, 2016.

“The thirteen American sailors who have qualified to represent USA at this event should be very proud,” said Josh Adams, Managing Director of US Olympic Sailing. “US Sailing is a strong supporter of the ISAF Youth Worlds, and we think that youth racers should strive to compete at this level. We are excited to provide the highest level of training and preparation ever given to a US Sailing Youth Worlds Team in the form of dedicated training camps and world-class coaching, which is central to the new Olympic Development Program (ODP) launched by US Sailing in early 2015.”

This is about raising the overall level of youth racing in the US, as well as helping these sailors perform well at the biggest youth event in the world.”- See more at: ussailing.org
