Bio :

Class: I420/ 49erFX
Team: Canadian Sailing Development Squad 

Madeline’s love for sailing grew at a young age when she would spend summers cruising the coast of Nova Scotia with her family on their keelboat. She got her competitive start in the optimist and graduated into the 420 as a crew when she was 14. Over the past three years, Madeline has expanded her knowledge as a crew by competing at international events and training with high-performance athletes. Madeline is entering twelfth grade at the Halifax Grammar School where she feels supported by all of her teachers. She has one more year of youth racing and will be proud to represent Canada at her third youth worlds this summer in the i420 class. Madeline’s goal is to advance into the FX this fall.
