Warren Nethercote - St Margaret Sailing Club

May 2016 - Warren Nethercote of St Margaret Sailing Club

Warren is a tireless contributor to his club, the province of Nova Scotia, Sail Canada, and regattas around the world. A continuously active volunteer at St Margaret Sailing Club, he has been on the club’s Board of Directors for a number of years, only very recently stepping down.

Warren’s leadership has been evident with Sail Canada’s Training & certification Committee - Chair from 2010 - 2013, and continued as a contributing member through 2015.


A leader in the training and development of Sailing Judges, Warren was active with Sail Canada’s Judges Sub-committee for decades. As an International Judge, Warren holds a wealth of knowledge and experience from his many appointments on sailing juries around the world.

Warren finds some time for himself – he is an avid ice-boater in the winter, and enjoys sailing a Soling in the summers. His volunteering touches so many – you will still find him volunteering as a Judge at regattas up and down the Atlantic Seaboard and at local, provincial & national US and Canadian sailing championships!

The St Margaret Sailing Club is a Member Club with Sail Nova Scotia and Sail Canada. A registered CANSail Training Site, SMSC’s Sailing School delivers CANSail dinghy programming for youth and Keelboat training for adults. They run weekend & weeknight racing for their members. Each year SMSC hosts the famous Bay Wind Regatta, and is renowned for hosting class championships at all levels, and the Sail Canada’s Sail East & National Youth Championships.
