San Francisco, CA---To the water now and San Francisco Bay in particular. That's where 20 year old Mosley alum Mathew Whitehead is this week, as he crews for one of two U.S. boats in the Youth America's Cup with 9 other teams. Unfortunately Matt and his fellow crew members aboard USA45 Racing not faring too well again today.

That boat with a 10th and a 7th place finish in the two Monday races.

That following two 9th place finishes Sunday in the first round of racing, so Whitehead's crew is in last place with two more days of racing ahead.

Regardless of how his team fares, you know it's an incredible series of experiences for Whitehead, who learned how to sail at the St. Andrews Bay Yacht Club.
