Our Team :)
Winter in Victoria

After racing against each other in Optis and 29er for over 13 years, we teamed up in the summer of 2022 to race the 49er FX together.

Tara competed in Optis for many years across Canada and the US and then transitioned into the c420 for a season as a member of the Royal Victoria Yacht Club race team. In early 2019, she began training and competing in the 29er and in 2021 and 2022 was invited to try out for the Sail Canada Youth Squad, but both years the trials were cancelled due to COVID. Tara is in her third year of electrical engineering at the University of Victoria.

Siobhan raced Optis for over five years and had the opportunity to represent Canada at the North American and South American Championships before taking a few years off of sailing. When she returned to sailing, she raced 29er on the BC provincial team for three years and was selected for the 2020 Sail Canada Youth Squad before transitioning into the 49er FX during the COVID-19 pandemic. Siobhan is currently in her fifth year of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Victoria with a special interest in aerospace engineering and a minor in music.

In 2023, we finished as the third female team at the Miami US Open regatta and were the top Canadian FX team at Junior Worlds in Travemunde, finishing 7th in silver fleet and 32nd overall.

For 2024, we have a busy year of training and racing planned including the Princess Sofia Regatta, FX Senior Europeans, and Kiel Week. We would be very grateful for your support so we can continue training and racing with the goal of representing Canada on the world stage.
