While there are pockets of success, participation in racing is declining throughout the United States, and US Sailing is committed to reigniting the energy and enthusiasm that once prevailed in competitive sailing. A vibrant, competitive sailing community is essential to the long-term sustainability of our sport.
Most sailing legends began their careers as young athletes at the Olympic Games and went on to inspire generations of sailors. To broadly revitalize competitive sailing, we’re rebuilding our pinnacle high-performance sailing program: The Olympic Sailing Program. Today’s investment will deliver tomorrow's legends.
