Three men and three women have been shortlisted for US Sailing’s 2018 Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year awards. Once again, the annual rundown of the year’s “best in the U.S.” represents a wide range of accomplished sailors from various disciplines and at different stages of their respective careers.
On Sunday, January 14th, the USST and Olympic Development Program athletes were joined by local and foreign sailors and volunteers who participated in the US Sailing Coconut Grove Coastal Clean-Up. The event was organized by US Sailing in partnership with VolunteerCleanup.Org and was sponsored by World Sailing. Upwards of 100 individuals collected over 850 pounds of trash from the mangroves lining Kennedy Park and Prime Point Marina. The USST athletes also took part in a workshop specifically designed to help identify how to become ‘change makers’ and reduce plastic pollution.
US Sailing’s Olympic Development Program (ODP) is kicking off 2019 with the next phase of Project Pipeline, which is the nation’s first long-term, high-performance youth sailing strategy. The goal of Project Pipeline is to give young U.S. competitors the skills necessary to compete successfully in all areas of international sailing, including the Olympic Games. Phase Two will focus on creating more opportunities for young athletes to try Olympic classes with more access to top-level coaching.

Legendary @USSailingTeam coach Luther Carpenter shared a thought about this. To paraphrase: even while doing boat handling warm ups, sail lifts and in pressure. Keep the strategic mind engaged. Don’t be a robot.
