And they are off! The young sailors that will represent Switzerland at the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup are on the plane bound for Bermuda. Team Tilt celebrated their departure for Bermuda last night with 130 guests in the foothills of the Jura Mountains at a beautiful event hosted by project partner, Jiva Hill Resort.
Sebastien Schneiter, skipper of the team, led a joyful and emotional presentation of the project, accompanied by sports director Tanguy Cariou, who has managed the project for the last three years. Afterwards, they joined guests for an evening of cocktails and dinner at the magnificent venue.
The team would like to thank the many guests that travelled for this special event and all those who have been unswerving in their support for Team Tilt in recent years!
It has taken a long time to get to this point, but today Team Tilt heads to Bermuda to represent Switzerland at the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, one of the most prestigious competitions in the world.

Gian Rossi, Member of the Executive Committee of Julius Baer and Head of Switzerland, sends the team off to Bermuda with these words: “From one Youth America’s Cup to the next, brilliant projects led by these young sailors!
Thanks to the determination of Alex Schneiter, Team Tilt has created new talent in sailing, the project has trained them, supported them and spared no effort to achieve their ambitious goals. “With our commitment to supporting young talent well-established in the world of music, we decided to partner with Team Tilt from the beginning in 2013 and season after season, our partnership has proved to be a fantastic sporting and human adventure! From the outset, the energy demonstrated by everyone involved was exemplary and communicative. This new generation of sailors has evolved incredibly quickly by systematically increasing the challenges and by integrating the latest innovations at the highest level. Julius Baer is delighted to be associated with Team Tilt and I am sure the team will impress us all once again and make Switzerland proud!”
