Countdown to the Paralympic Games!

Stacie Louttit and John McRoberts have some unfinished business from the 2008 Games to deal with; they placed third for a bronze medal behind the American and Australian teams. Stacie and John both sail from the Royal Victoria Yacht Club on the West Coast and have once again qualified in the two-person SKUD-18, a purpose-designed high performance skiff that is a serious challenge to sail for anyone.

The three-person keel boat team is composed of Bruce Millar, Logan Campbell and Scott Lutes. A true Canadian team, they hail from BC, the Prairies and Quebec respectively and look forward to their first Paralympic participation. Strong results at the recent World Cup Regatta are encouraging for London.
