America's Cup Endeavour Community Sailing (Legacy) Fund

America's Cup Endeavour Community Sailing (Legacy) Fund: The America's Cup Endeavour Programme provides a pathway to success for youth in Bermuda across all backgrounds as they experience an interactive STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) curriculum, water safety knowledge and an opportunity to develop life skills through a second-to-none community sailing programme.

The Endeavour Programme will particularly benefit youth who would not otherwise have opportunities to experience the challenges and skill developments provided by sailing exposure to science, technology, engineering, arts and math educational activities in an experiential classroom to improve their overall learning experience and foster their interest in pursuing STEAM career pathways in the future.

Red Bull Youth America's Cup Team Bermuda

The Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, which began in 2013, takes place in Bermuda in 2017. Bermuda will have a team in that tournament. The work is underway to build Team BDA. 

In two years, on our spectacular Great Sound, there will be a home team to cheer for and a flag to rally around. This is a national opportunity to unify around the universal language of sport and deliver the benefits of sailing into every corner of our community. 

This effort will be expensive. Our budget expectations total roughly $1 million over the next two years. The financial support of community-minded organizations and individuals will be a tremendous boost toward achieving the Team BDA mission.
