The Youth AC is live on the AC mobile app  and on the RedBull TV...

 8 teams of young sailors (18-24 yr-old) from various countries are battling out on the same course as the AC35 in Bermuda.

They all sail the same AC45s which were  used in the preparation to the AC35 by the main teams.

The finals involve : BAR Academy (UK), Team TILT (CH) Team France Jeune (FR), Artemis Youth Racing (SW), NZL Sailing(NZ), Team BDA (Bermuda), Spanish Implulse (SP) and SVB Team Germany.

Peter Burling, skipper of Emirates TNZ, won the previous edition during AC34 in 2013. 

Cheers !

Last races live now... Quite a show of skills by these young sailors, especially about the start line: Imagine, 8 AC45s converging on the narrow line....
