Ryan and Andrew started sailing the 49er FX in the summer of 2016 and moved into the 49er that winter. The brothers have been competing in the 49er while attending school. In 2021 Ryan and Andrew have committed to sailing full time in hopes of representing Canada at the 2024 Olympics. They are currently a part of the Canadian Sailing Development Squad. Most recently Ryan and Andrew won the 2021 49er Canadians and placed 28th at the 2021 49er Europeans and 27th at the 2021 49er World Championships.
Ryan and Andrew's goal this year is to finish in the top 25 at the World Championships which is taking place in St Margert's Bay, Nova Scotia in September. Leading up to the Worlds, the brothers will make two trips to Europe to train with the rest of the fleet and to compete in the Princesa Sofia Regatta, Kieler Woche, and the 49er European Championships in Aarhus. They will also be spending May and August training at the Worlds venue in St Margert's Bay in preparation for the Worlds.
