Published on March 5th, 2015

Kingston, ONT (March 5, 2015) – Sail Canada has announced members of the 2015 Canadian Sailing Team, with the sailors having been selected based on their performances at a designated qualifying regatta.

This year’s team lineup include many familiar faces such as 3-time Olympian Nikola Girke, 2012 Olympians Luke Ramsay (Nacra 17), and Zac Plavsic (RSX:M).

“I’m proud and excited to be part of the Canadian Sailing Team alongside so many talented sailors and dedicated teammates,” said Girke. “This year, 2015 is a big year for many of us as we try to qualify ourselves for the 2016 Olympic Games and compete in Toronto 2015. Lending our support to each other will help us all as we strive for excellence.”

Securing their national team status early in the year at the IFDS World Championships include Paralympic sailors Bruce Millar (2.4mR), John McRoberts/Jackie Gay (SKUD) Paul Tingley, Logan Campbell, and Scott Lutes (SONAR).

“Our team is excited to be part of the Canadian Sailing Team for another year,” said Tingley. “It should be an exciting year as we prepare for the IFDS worlds in Australia in November. Our team will be based in Toronto and looking forward to sailing with the coaches and other national team members there.”

There are a total of 5 new team members earning National Team status including Radial sailor Sarah Douglas, sister of Olympian Greg Douglas.

“2015 is the Year of Sport and we are looking forward to building our team for Rio and beyond”, states Ken Dool, High Performance Director. “The 2015 Canadian Sailing Team includes both the future performers in our sport and the veteran team members looking to make their mark internationally. I take pleasure in welcoming both new team members and veteran performers to the 2015 Canadian Sailing Team.”
