It consists of a mix of Kiwis and Americans, all fantastic sailors in their own right. 2013 was US One’s first year as a tour card holder and they did not disappoint. In an extremely successful year for the team they not only won Chicago Match Cup, but were crowned the ISAF Match Racing World Champions knocking four time champion Ian Williams off of the top spot. In 2014, they come back to the tour fighting fit to defend their title!
