Galen Richardson and Jake Adair have recently joined as a team just in time to win a Silver Medal for Ontario at the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Gimli Manitoba. Their near goal is to represent Canada at the 2018 Youth Worlds in the 29er.
Galen grew up sailing at RCYC in Toronto. At 6 he was in the Optimist and racing by 9. He twice won the Valerie Bergeron Award as top Canadian at CORK and represented Canada at the European Championships and North American Championships. In 2015 Galen moved up to the 29er and in 2016 won the 29er Canadian Championships. In addition to teaming up with Jake for the Canada Summer Games and for the 2017 competitive season in the 29er, Galen competes in the 49erFX and Nacra 15 with Aidan Chiu.
Jake grew up in Kingston and learned his sailing basics at Kingston Yacht Club. He loved the speed of the 29er and was soon hooked. He recently placed 2nd at the 2017 29er Canadian Championships.
