Project USA aims to put together the first fully competitive American entry into the Vendee Globe and Ocean Masters World Championship. Five West is working to match the right sponsor with one of America’s leading ocean racers to make US sailing history and put an American on the podium of the Vendee Globe for the first time in history. 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.

Five West is one of the world’s leading sailing consultancies with over 12 years’ experience running professional sailing campaigns. With a wealth of young American offshore sailing 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.
