Sail Canada is pleased to announce the list of sailors who will be part of the 2023-2024 Canadian Sailing Team and Canadian Sailing Development Squad.

The 28 squad members were selected based on the Canadian Sailing Team Sport Canada Carding Criteria as well as on their overall performance during the 2022-2023 season.

Carded sailors from both the Canadian Sailing Team and the Canadian Sailing Development Squad receive financial support through the Sport Canada Athlete Assistance Program to help offset the costs related to their sport.
