Sailing at worlds 2024

Noé started sailing at the age of 5 at the Royal Saint Lawrence Yacht Club in Dorval where he slowly started developing interest for the optimist class, a small but very tactical boat that is essential to the development of youth sailors. As he progressed in age, Noé joined the learn to race program at Pointe Claire yacht club where his competitive spirit revealed that he would be a perfect fit for the racing scene of sailing in canada. Noé furthered his quest to the optimist race team of pointe claire yacht club where he represented his club and province at events such as the Canadian championships, the Quebec Championships and the Cork international regatta. Sadly, the pandemic cut his time short on the optimist right on the Spanish Orange Bowl Regatta in Valencia where he was supposed to represent Canada had the pandemic not happened.

In 2021, Noé made the decision to start fresh by sailing a new class: The ILCA 4. Showing great dedication and fantastic work ethic, Noé was able to secure a top 5 finish at the ILCA 4 Canadian championships in his first year sailing the boat. Noé has since fully transitioned to the ILCA 6 class where he has represented Canada in multiple high level events such as ILCA 6 North Americans, ILCA 6 USA Nationals & ILCA 6 Cork International. During 2022 his determination & skill level caught the attention of Sail Canada evaluations, being conditionally accepted into the 2023-2024 Canadian Youth Squad. In summer of 2023, Noé made the podium at international events such as 2nd place at the district 8 regatta in New York. In early 2024, Noé took 3rd place amongst all Canadians participating at youth worlds placing a fair 20th position in silver fleet.
