US Sailing Development Team

The 2015 US Sailing Development Team (USSDT) is comprised of sailors in the classes selected for the ISAF Youth World Championships and the Olympic Games.

This is the youth pathway team supported by US Sailing’s Olympic Sailing Committee (OSC). The USSDT was created to help young athletes, who have been identified as future Olympic prospects, acquire the skills necessary to launch successful campaigns and compete at the Olympic level.

The USSDT is comprised of talented, up-and-coming sailors, who are the top finishers at US Sailing’s Youth Worlds Team qualifying regattas and ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami.
