It gives me great pleasure to announce not only the Youth World Team athletes from Ontario, which is being hosted in Saniya China December 9-16, but also the coaching team that have been selected by Sail Canada from Ontario.

  • In the Laser Radial Clara Gravely will be competing. Clara is a member of the Ontario Sailing Team and a member of ABYC.
  • In the 420 Pat Wilson and Arie Moffat from Kingston YC will be competing. Both Pat and Arie are identified athletes in our Ontario OHPSI (High Performance) program.
  • In the 29er William Bonin and Samuel Bonin members of RCYC and the Ontario Sailing Team round out the athletes from Ontario.

Sail Canada just announced the coaching team which includes Chris Hewson our Provincial Coach for the Radial and Lauren Laventure who is the Skiff Coach at RCYC (our Provincial Olympic Training Center).

In terms of percentage of the team Ontario athletes make up 50% of the team and 66% of the Coaching Team.

Athletes will be training very hard over the next number of weeks to take advantage of the warmer than usual fall we are having.

Congratulations to our Athletes, and to Lauren and Chris in being selected as coaches.
