The Foundation’s goal is to foster appreciation of the rich maritime history behind the 12 metre class by providing the “hands-on” thrill of sailing actual 12 metre America’s Cup yachts.


The 12 metre Yacht Development Foundation was established in 2006 in Greenwich, Conneticut, USA  for the acquisition, restoration, and preservation of historic America’s Cup 12 metre yachts and their racing heritage.  The Foundation’s goal is to foster appreciation of the rich maritime history behind the 12 metre class by providing the “hands-on” thrill of sailing actual 12 metre America’s Cup yachts. The Foundation’s philosophy is to maintain these proud yachts as working boats in order to make them available for use to a wide variety of groups, including local
sailing enthusiasts, corporate patrons, schools, charitable events, youth sailing programs and yacht clubs.

12mYDF  recently launched the Gary Jobson 12m Sail Camps & Clinics - to the 41
yacht clubs, Commodores and sailing directors at the recent JSA - Junior Sailing
Association Winter Meeting - targeting youth, junior sailors, adults, and
executives.

12mYDF America's Cup 12m yachts provide the not to be missed experience with "more
complexity and power, a platform that promotes team work and socializing with
other teens" and channels much needed inspiration to the possibility of bigger
and better things as far up as the current pro circuit ranks of the World Match
Racing Tour

12mYDF's goal is to build out a new bench mark in educational "big boat-hands on"
sailing under the 501c3 educational/charitable mission to "acquire, restore and
preserve historic America's Cup 12m Yachts and their "match racing" heritage"
with former AmCup Stars.
