Not since 1920 has the America’s Cup been in New York harbor. But this weekend the world’s fastest sailboats are back and for the very first time, America’s Cup will be bringing stateside its non-profit AC Endeavour program for partnerships with three area youth sailing organizations. In the middle of all the action, Walt Whitman freshmen Elliott Trester and Jenny Duclay will be representing Sail Ahead: Healing Wounded Veterans through Sailing, and Oakcliff Sailing Center.

Way to go guys!!
