Sail Canada is pleased to introduce its 13-member team who will represent the country at the 2021 Youth Sailing World Championships to be held in Al Mussanah, Oman, December 11-18, 2021.

Throughout the competition, with races running from Monday, December 13, until Friday, December 17, 12 events will take place, including female and male Windsurfing, ILCA 6 (Laser Radial), 29er (skiff) and Kiteboarding, as well as female and mixed/male i420 (two-person Dinghy) and mixed Nacra 15 (two-person multihull). Canada will be represented in all events, except for Windsurfing and female Kiteboarding.

All the Canadian athletes will be competing at the Youth Sailing World Championships for the first time. They have been selected based on their performances at the Sail Canada Youth Championships and other qualifying events held over the summer and fall.

The 2021 Youth Sailing World Championships will also be a family affair for the Canadian team as three siblings from the same family will take part in this international event: Jackson, Riley and Finlay Macaulay from Halifax, N.S. Riley and Finlay, the youngest sisters, will compete together in the female i420 class.
