These are crew members whom Arnaud Psarofaghis – who’s been at the heart of the project since it started – knows well. “Going on this adventure with friends I’ve known since childhood and people I’ve been working with for over 20 years is very exciting,” the 33-year-old Swiss sailor says. “Even if I haven't necessarily sailed with them, this bond is a great advantage.

We understand each other, which will make communication so much easier. And that’s vital, because on board, good communication is key. And off the boat too: we know when one of us is going through a rough patch, how to talk with them, and when... The only thing that counts is performance, and it’s with this in mind that the teams will be put together.”

You may not know these young sailors yet, but you’re going to see a lot of them from now through autumn 2024. With a background in Olympic sports, flying boats, or the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, they started to be recruited last summer, and will be divided into the following roles: tactician, helmsman, foil trimmer, sail trimmer and grinders.
