Peter van Muyden - Wabamun Sailing Club

January 2016 - Peter van Muyden of Wabamun Sailing Club
 
Not only has Peter van Muyden devoted himself to delivering high quality race management in Canada and around the world, he has applied himself wholly to teaching the others how to do the same.
 
While van Muyden holds leadership roles in Sail Canada’s Governance (Race Management Sub-Committee and the Training and Certification Committee), he is renowned for signing up to conduct Race Management Seminars and Clinics across the country.  All this training is fit in amongst van Muyden’s Race Officer positions with regattas at home and around the globe. He is always generous to share his experiences from events - such as Pan American Games, Sailing World Cup, Class World Championships and Canada Games - applying them to updated training resources for Sail Canada Race Management programming.
 
Wherever he is van Muyden is always willing to offer resource. He provides a significant amount of assistance to national and provincial Race Management initiatives, and goes above and beyond to help event organizers and Race Course Officers remember that the competitor is the customer.
