US Sailing unveils new Project Pipeline initiative

In an effort to improve the Olympic youth development system for sailing in the United States, US Sailing and the AmericaOne Foundation announced a new initiative called Project Pipeline.

The foundation will support Project Pipeline with a lead gift of $5 million.

“The top winning nations in sailing share the common trait of a well-formed talent development system,” US Olympic Sailing managing director Josh Adams said in a statement. “This is critical to sustainable success in Olympic sailing. With the extraordinary commitment of $5 million from the AmericaOne Foundation, we are in a position to launch a long-term initiative that will transform the way top young sailors train in the U.S.”

Project Pipeline will target American youth talent and lead them into high-performance boats earlier in their development.

“AmericaOne is determined to do what it can to help the USA return to the Olympic podium.” said Paul Cayard, a U.S. Olympian and director of the foundation. “Project Pipeline is a necessary ingredient in U.S. Olympic sailing and it is our hope that others will follow our lead in supporting America’s youth.”
