Laser Canadians 2021

Thank you for visiting my page! I am a 19 year-old Laser Radial sailor from Halifax, Nova Scotia sailing on canadian sailing development squad. I grew up spending summers on my parent's Beneteau  where I learned to appreciate being on the water so much. When I was older I joined the learn to sail program at the RNSYS. Although I was hesitant at first about sailing in an Opti, I was quick to realize the joy that being able to sail by myself brought to me.  When I was ten I  really looked up to the older Opti sailors on the race team which drove me to want to be like them. I spent 4 years competitively racing the Opti where I had great success at the national level.

After the Opti I transitioned to the Laser Radial which I raced nationally and internationally in the youth category. During this period I raced at two youth word championships in 2017 and 2019 as the only representative for Canada in the radial fleet.

In 2020 I transitioned to the laser standard which is raced in the Olympics. Luckily this past June and July I trained and raced all over California testing myself against top American sailors. This was a great opportunity considering I have not seen any international competition in almost two years. Following my eight weeks in California I traveled to Kingston Ontario to race the Laser nationals where I was crowned the national Champion.

At the end of the Summer I will compete in Gdynia, Poland at the U-21 words where I hope to finish at the top of the fleet. Come September I will begin my third year at Dalhousie University majoring in Laser sailing with a minor in Oceanography. I hope to one day become a top Laser sailor in the world and compete at multiple world championships and Olympics.
