US SAILING will send 10 members of the US Youth World Team to represent the United States at the 2006 Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship in Weymouth and Portland, Great Britain. Home of the 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition, the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy will host the regatta from July 12-21, 2006. 

More than 350 of the world's best young sailors from a record 64 nations will compete for seven gold medals in the following classes: singlehanded Laser (boys) and Laser Radial (girls), the doublehanded 420 (boys and girls), the RS:X windsurfer (boys and girls), and multihull Hobie 16 (open).

The 2006 US Youth World Team will be accompanied by Team Leader David Dellenbaugh (Easton, Conn.) and coaches Brett Davis (St. Petersburg, Fla.) and Mikee Anderson-Mitterling (Coronado, Calif.).
