Canadian Sailing Youth Squad members

2020 Canadian Sailing Youth Squad members

In order to qualify for the Canadian Sailing Youth Squad, each sailor attended one of 9 regional Talent ID camps which attracted 186 sailors from across Canada. Of the 186 that tried out, 45 were invited to attend the Canadian Sailing Youth Squad trials camp that was held January 1-7 in Clearwater, Florida. From this camp, 33 sailors have been nominated to the 2020 Canadian Sailing Youth Squad.

Athletes were assessed on skill, talent and compatibility to a certain class in which they are currently sailing. 

“Sail Canada has made a commitment to investing in our young performance sailors and the 2020 Canadian Sailing Youth Squad is the start of our long term performance strategy that will be implemented over the next two years” Mike Milner – High Performance Director, Sail Canada
