Vancouver, BC – Wednesday, May 1, 2024 —Today, Team Canada announced that three of Canada’s leading corporations, Concord Green Energy (Concord Pacific), RBC and TELUS, will sponsor its historic bid at the inaugural Puig Women’s America’s Cup and the UniCredit Youth America’s Cup in Barcelona this year.

With a commitment to advancing gender equity and nurturing young Canadian talent, Concord Pacific, RBC and TELUS will support in heralding a new era of Canadian sailing.

Sailing under the banner of Concord Pacific Racing, the Canadian teams have their sights set on victory, aiming to etch their names in history as one of the first women’s teams to compete in a prestigious new chapter of America’s Cup history spanning 173 years. The UniCredit Youth America’s Cup begins on September 17, and the Puig Women’s America’s Cup starts on October 5.

Terry Hui, President and CEO of Concord Pacific, emphasised the natural synergy in supporting the Canadian Youth and Women’s teams. As a competitive sailor himself, he recognises the historical moment it represents for advancing opportunities for women in sailing. “Participation in the America’s Cup will inspire a future generation of sailors in Canada,” Hui said. “Internationally, this will be the key to open a traditionally conservative sport to a new wave of development and participation for women.”
