Cousins Lisa Darmanin and Jason Waterhouse will make their Olympic debut in the Nacra 17 mixed multi-hull, with the event new on the program for Rio 2016.
Both 24 and from Sydney’s northern beaches, the pair have been sailing together for eight years.
“To make the Australian Olympic Team is a surreal feeling, it has definitely not sunk in yet,” Darmanin said.
“What’s even more special is doing it with my cousin Jason, we are only 6 weeks apart and grew up together, we are very different people but we are perfect on the boat together and the best of friends, so to make the Team with him is incredible and it’s great that it is also a big family celebration.
