Carlos started sailing at a very young age on his parent's keelboat. Later at the age of seven, he took part in Ottawa's Nepean Sailing Club’s sailing school and worked his way up the CanSail levels, reaching CanSail5 at the age of 11, and recognized as best young sailor under 13 and under 16 two years in a row. When he moved to Montreal at the age of 11, he started sailing the Optimist at Pointe Claire Yacht Club. Carlos managed to be on to the Canadian Optimist Team in less than a year by summer 2019. He was selected to be in the 2020 Opti South American Championship, 2020 Opti North American Championship and 2021 Opti World Championship team, unfortunately the pandemic canceled these events.
Carlos then decided to make a strategic and early move to the ILCA 4 class in June 2021. He performed well in his first year getting podiums locally by being in every provincial podium, nationally by winning CORK and internationally ranking third at the Euromed regatta in Malta, and silver medal at the 2021 Midwinters East in St.Pete, FL. In August of 2022, Carlos attended his first ILCA 4 Youth World Championship in Vilamoura PT, and placed 82nd overall out of 272, 1st Canadian and 4th North American.
He is now training for the 2023 ILCA 4/6 Europeans and World Championships.
