Ben and Sarah’s goal is to represent Canada at the inaugural Double Handed Offshore World Championships in Lorient, France at the end of September. This event was originally proposed for the 2024 Olympics, however will now be hosted as an annual event by World Sailing with the goal of having it included in the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles. Attending this event in 2024 will help Ben, Sarah, and Canada gain valuable experience that can be put to use in building a campaign towards the Olympics in 2028.

The Double Handed Offshore World Championships is a mixed gender event, which highlights sailing's unique ability to allow men and women to compete alongside and against each other on a level playing field. Events with mandatory mixed gender teams encourage more women to participate in the sport, and Ben and Sarah’s program is a great example of this with Sarah being the skipper of the vessel.

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all our donors. Your donation is helping support not just our campaign, but also promoting Canadian double handed sailing, offshore sailing, and increasing gender equity across the sport.

Thank you!
