Project USA is a partnership between leading American offshore sailor Ryan Breymaier and Five West to raise sponsorship for and manage Ryan’s attempt to become the first American skipper to finish on the podium of the Vendee Globe.

The United States of America has a rich history of yachting success from the Volvo Ocean Race to the Olympics and the America’s Cup. However, no American has ever finished better than 9th in the world’s toughest ocean race - the Vendee Globe.

Ryan has a tremendous sailing record to date having competed for many years at the highest of international sailing. The Vendee Globe is one of the world’s greatest tests of human endurance and sporting skill, and is something that Ryan has been targeting for many years.

Five West is one of the world’s leading sailing consultancies with over 12 years’ experience running professional sailing campaigns. With Ryan’s talent and the knowledge and experience Five West brings to the management of the campaign, a podium finish in the Vendee Globe 2016 is an achievable target.
