Help young champion sailors achieve Gold Cup!

About us 

We are three young international champion sailors racing to raise awareness for cleaner, healthier seas!
We'd love your help in getting to the 69F Youth Foiling Gold Cup 2022 - a series of four races, at the highest level of youth foiling, all in the name of Clean Sailors.
We are CJ Perez (18), Lukas Hesse (22) and Jann Schüpbach (21) and we are ocean ambassadors with our eyes firmly set on winning the 69F Youth Foiling Gold Cup 2022. 
We'll be competing together in a Persico 69F foiling dinghy aiming to inspire generations of sailors across the world in becoming active ambassadors for the protection of our oceans.

As ocean ambassadors, we take great care to limit our impact on the planet and we are raising awareness to encourage our global sailing and marine industries to do the same. This is why, for example, we are borrowing our racing boats instead of buying them.


Our Clean Sailors Race Team will be working hard to compete at the top of our class, spreading our passion and determination for a healthier ocean. 

Meet Lukas
Lukas (22) has a background in 29er and 49er dinghies, was named German Champion in 2020, and transitioned to WASZP and 69F boats to realise his dream of racing foils. 

Meet CJ
At 18 years old, CJ Perez (Hawaii, USA) has recently won the 2021 US National Championships in the WASZP class, and has been selected to join the United States SailGp Team - at 18 years old being the youngest sailor ever to join the SailGP league, and the first ever latina.

 Meet Jann
After Olympic campaigns in the 470 Dinghy, plus national and international podium stands Jann Schüpbach (21) is preparing for the WASZP European and World Championships, alongside the Clean Sailors 69F Team’s 2022 Gold Cup journey. 

We are raising money to help power our boat rental through this years' circuit.
This is your chance to help power THE champion youth sailing team with a heart for our ocean.
Don't miss it!
