Marvin McDill Memorial Award Past Winners

The Marvin McDill Memorial Award was established to honour the man who returned Canada to the America’s Cup Competition in 1983.

Also known as the Canadian Sailing Team Rookie of the Year Award, the Marvin McDill Award is presented annually to the athlete/crew with the best results at their first Open World Championship as a member of the Canadian Sailing Team.

The determination of best performance is based on the percentage (%) of boats finishing behind the athlete (crew) at his/her first participation as a member of the Canadian Sailing Team in an Open World Championship.
