Sarah Douglas

Athlete Bio

Born in Burlington, Ontario, Sarah started sailing at the age of 7 on the island of Barbados. Starting in the Optimist, she competed in North American and World Championships before the age of 15.

After outgrowing the boat, Sarah returned to Canada and transitioned into the Laser Radial class. From there she quickly became one of the top youth sailors in Canada. After some time past, Sarah decided to take a break from competing and decided to coach youth athletes at Ahsbridge’s Bay Yacht Club for two summers. By 2014, her dream to attend the Olympics was awoken by Canadian medalist who inspired her to get back into the game. Today she is ranked one of the best Laser Radial sailors in the world! Winning Gold at the 2019 Pan Americain Games in Peru has only pushed her forward towards her goal of competing at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
