we will see how it goes in 49ners... but it looks like you need 8 years of experience to be in medal contention in the skiffs and cats.... The US is just gonna have to find a way to start the top sailors earlier! Collegiate All American does not move the ball far enough!

And there's not even a Multihull in collegiate racing, so other than starting in Multihull in a club setting, like Taylor and Mathew, there's not going to be a lot of depth with years of experience (young) there.
