The Saunders Brothers
Jacob and Graeme Saunders (Team Saunders) are brothers from Chester, Nova Scotia who started sailing together in 2010. Since then they have been working steadily on their goal to be a competitive team at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro representing Canada in the 470 class. Some highlights from their career include being crowned 2015 North American Champions and two top 10 performances at the Sailing World Cup Miami in 2013 and 2016. The brothers have qualified Canada for the Rio 2016 Olympics and are currently working toward securing a nomination to the Canadian Olympic Team for 2016.
