Announcing the 2019 - 2020 Canadian Sailing Team & Canadian Sailing Development Squad

Announcing the 2019 - 2020 Canadian Sailing Team & Canadian Sailing Development Squad

April 24th, 2019 - Kingston, ON

Sail Canada is proud to announce the members of the 2019-2020 Canadian Sailing Team and Canadian Sailing Development Squad.

Based on the current Sail Canada High-Performance Plan and the Podium Pathway, what has been previously known as the National Sailing Team or the Canadian Sailing Team, is now divided into two divisions; The Canadian Sailing Team (“CST”) and The Canadian Sailing Development Squad (“CSDS”). Sail Canada believes it is important to make a shift from the notion that receiving Sport Canada AAP funding (“carded”) automatically translate to Canadian Sailing Team or National Team status.

Through this shift, Sail Canada hopes to better support athletes on both the CST and CSDS at their respective stages as they move through the Podium Pathway.

Congratulations to the following members of the 2019-20 Canadian Sailing Team and Canadian Sailing Development Squad :
