Three Canadian sailors will represent their country at the 2022 ILCA 6 Women's World Championships to be held October 11-16 in Kemah, Texas (USA), including Tokyo 2020 Olympian Sarah Douglas.

It will be the first competition for the 28-year-old sailor from Toronto, ON, since the World Sailing World Cup event that was held in June in the Netherlands, where she took the 13th spot. Back in April, Sarah Douglas won the gold medal at the World Cup stop in Spain. She was looking to compete in the test event for the 2023 World Sailing World Championships in The Hague, Netherlands, but racing was cancelled due to bad weather.

"I'm looking forward to racing closer to home for the 2022 World Championships," said Sarah Douglas. "I didn't compete in the 2021 edition because I was resting after the Tokyo Olympics, so I'm excited to get back to racing with the best sailors in the world. I've been training all summer for this event and I'm stoked to be competing in North America."

Along with Sarah Douglas, two members of Sail Canada Development Squad will also take part in the women's competition: Clara Gravely from Toronto, ON, and Coralie Vittecoq from Montreal, QC.

An ILCA 6 Men's World Championships will also be held at the same time and one Canadian will be in action: Aidan Dennis from Caledon, ON.
