Canada will be represented by 30 sailors at the World Sailing Hempel World Cup held at the 51st Princess Sofia Trophy in Mallorca, Spain, which is slated to start on Monday, April 4 and will run until April 9. The event, which will showcase over 1000 athletes, will be the first major Olympic multiclass competition to take place since Tokyo 2020.

Canada will have four teams in 49er and four more in 49er FX. There will be four athletes in ILCA 6, 10 in ILCA 7 and one in Nacra 17.

The Canadian delegation will be led by six Olympians who competed at Tokyo 2020: Sarah Douglas in ILCA 6 (Laser Radial), William Jones and Evan DePaul in the 49er, Ali ten Hove and Mariah Millen in the 49er FX, as well as two-time Olympian Tom Ramshaw, who will compete in ILCA 7. Ramshaw recently switched from his previous class, the Finn, which will no longer be part of the Olympic program at Paris 2024. The full list of Canadian Sailing Team, Development Squad members and Canadian athletes who will compete at the World Sailing Hempel World Cup can be found below.

"I'm stoked to be back in Palma, Spain," said Sarah Douglas. "The last time I was here was in 2019, before the following editions of the event were cancelled because of the pandemic. It's one of my favourite venues on the circuit. Most of the international fleet is here and I'm looking forward to reuniting with them and getting back to competition."

"I'm looking forward to racing in Palma," added Tom Ramshaw. "It'll be my first big international regatta back in Laser since 2015, so it'll be a test to see where I stand internationally and an opportunity to find out what I need to work on moving forward. I don't feel any particular pressure nor do I have any expectations in terms of results. I'm just going to go out and enjoy being back to racing in a high-level fleet."
