 Canadian sailors Tom Ramshaw and Sarah Douglas are moving up the scoreboard at the Sailing World Championships

Tuesday August 6th, 2018 - Kingston, ON

Things are heating up at the 2018 Sailing World Championships Aarhus in Denmark. Finn, Laser and Laser Radial sailors have started fleet racing today, on day 6 at the event.  

 

Tom Ramshaw has kept his high ranking throughout the entire event, placing him 2nd after the first day in the gold fleet. The stakes are high for this Finn sailor, as he goes in for the medal race on Thursday.

 

Laser Radial sailor, Sarah Douglas has been showing off her skills, and making her way to the top of the scoreboard. Finishing 4th in today’s gold fleet racing, she is currently sitting 3rd overall.

 

Sailors are competing for more than a medal at this event, as the Sailing World Championships are the first and largest qualification regatta for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. With 40% of the places being decided at this event, sailors will need to push hard to make their way up the scoreboard.
