ROFF Cascais 3rd in Red Bull America´s Cup #RBYAC - Victory goes to the Kiwis
Frenetic aggression and elite racing was the order of the day for the youth sailors of the Red Bull Youth America's Cup on Championship Wednesday, as New Zealand Sailing Team with Emirates Team New Zealand prevailed over nine other teams from around the world to take the inaugural title on San Francisco Bay.
The New Zealand team was challenged early and often by its fierce rivals on Full Metal Jacket (NZL) and Marinepool sponsored ROFF/Cascais Sailing Team from Portugal, who finished second and third, respectively. These 19-24 year old young guns and future stars of the America's Cup were shining bright as they carved out a pathway for themselves into the professional ranks.
The leaderboard was tight throughout the regatta. The 10 youth teams, representing 8 countries, pogoed up and down the points' table with each race result leading to tense moments on the final day.
The big winner on the day was the ROFF/Cascais Sailing Team, who scored a second place to lift themselves onto the podium ahead of the Swiss and the American Youth Sailing Force who had a disappointing eighth place finish, dropping from third to fifth overall.
The second Marinepool supported team Next World Energy from France finished 8th.
