Introducing the team...
This team of 20 cadet class sailing stars—aged 10 to 17 years old—were selected to represent the UK in Buenos Aires, Argentina to compete in the 50th World Cadet Championships at the end of December 2016.
We spent a weekend with the team at the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy, during their pre-World Championships training schedule and felt truly inspired by their passion and dedication to their sport. Watch them in action here...
As the official sponsor of the GBR World Cadet Sailing Team, we'll be following them on their quest for success in Argentina and then into the New Year as they focus their attention on being selected for the team that will then head to the Netherlands in July for the 2017 World Championships.
The UK Cadet sailing class is one of the leading junior classes in the UK, providing young people with access to the sport and the opportunity and training to become top performing athletes. Many successful Olympic sailors started their sail racing careers in the UK Cadet Class and the Royal Yachting Association, a world-class governing body for sailing, fully supports the class.
Thanks to Neilson's sponsorship the team will have access to the best youth racing in the world, affording them the chance to represent their country on an international level and in turn inspiring the next generation of sailors.
Good luck guys & girls!
