Bullet on Day 4 at the World Championships in Aarhus!

Sunday August 5th, 2018 - Kingston, ON

Canadian Sailing Team Members are moving their way up the scoreboard at the 2018 Sailing World Championships Aarhus in Denmark. Striking a bullet on the last race of the day, Sarah Douglas (Laser Radial) is putting skills into action, as she is currently sitting in 7th overall. Tom Ramshaw (Finn) has had a steady event, securing his 4th place on the scoreboard. The points are tight, and the competition is tough!

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.
