2009 Athlete PP

24 competitors from 14 nations were approved for Athlete Participation Programme (APP) funding support to attend the 2009 Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship, held in Buzios, Brazil from 9-18 July. Thanks to the APP, the Youth Worlds celebrated a century of nations in 2009 as Botswana and Nigeria attend the championship for the first time, increasing the total number of nations who have competed since the first event back in 1971 to 101.

In addition to subsidised travel and entry, the APP also provides free, top-level coaching during the championship. The APP sailors gets the benefit of daily briefings from the World Youth Sailing Trust coach, whilst all competitors can attend the video debrief sessions held at the end of each day's racing. The 2009 WYST coach was Argentina's two-time Olympic medallist and Volvo Ocean Race competitor Santiago LANGE.
