Bio

TeamBDA is Bermuda’s entry in the 2017 Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, a competition designed to create a pathway for young sailors into the highest level of international sailing.

TeamBDA was adopted by ORACLE TEAM USA as its representative in the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup. This guaranteed TeamBDA qualification into the competition which will take place from June 12-21, 2017, as part of the 35th America’s Cup racing schedule, in Bermuda and feature up to 16 teams from around the world.

The final team was selected through a series of grueling physical and mental assessments that initially sought to identify athletes capable of withstanding the extreme physical challenge of racing a foiling catamaran – sailing ability was just one of the criteria looked at in evaluating the candidates.
