Canadian sailor Sarah Douglas from Toronto, ON, recorded Canada's best performance in ILCA 6 at the second World Sailing World Cup of the season that ended on Sunday in Almere-Lelystad, Netherlands, as she finished in 13th position overall.

Douglas, who won the gold medal at the first World Cup of the season in April, had some highs and lows throughout the nine races that were held over the week, coming up with fourth-, eighth- and third-place results. Coralie Vittecoq from Montréal, QC, finished 36th, Maura Dewey from Victoria, B.C., took the 40th spot while Clara Gravely from Toronto, ON, was 44th out of a total of 57 athletes registered.

The ILCA 6 competition was won by Vasileia Karachaliou from Greece, followed by Emma Plasschaert from Belgium and Anna Munch from Denmark.

"It was a challenging week for me in Almere as I couldn't quite get the strategy right. I have a lot of learning points and things to work on after this event," said Douglas, who will now stay in the Netherlands for a week of training as part of her preparation for the World Sailing World Championships which will take place in August of 2023 in The Hague.

A total of eight Canadian sailors took part in this week's competition.
