Sailors interested in being considered for the team should email their sailing resume to US SAILING's High Performance Director Gary BODIE at The application deadline is 1 February 2007.

'We strive to support our athletes who will compete in the Olympic Games, not only in 2008, but also in 2012, 2016 and beyond,' said Dean BRENNER, chairman of US SAILING's Olympic Sailing Committee (OSC). 'We are focusing on elite youth development, and initially on single-handed classes. Over time, our intention is to broaden this programme to include other Olympic Classes.
