Sailing at the 2019 Pan American games wrapped up today in Paracas, Peru. The event saw an array of conditions that made for a challenging event for our Canadian sailors. With the final medal race of the event in the Sunfish and Kiteboarding, Canada adds another medal to the list.

Pan Am veteran, Luke Ramsay, took to the water today fighting for gold. In an event long battle with Brazil, this Sunfish sailor comments: "it was a tight race, we were neck and neck most of the way. In the last upwind my goal was to round with him and put a boat in between us in the downwind. I rounded right with him but I wasn't able to get overlap which would have allowed me to have taken him out."

While Luke was unable to pass him, he still managed to find a spot on the podium bringing home silver for Canada. "Re-joining the Canadian team was such a blast. The team is full of young sailors on their way to future success; they are talented and hardworking and I feel extremely privileged to be a part of it!"

In Kiteboarding, Michael Brodeur was able to represent Canada in a fleet new to the Pan Am Games. Placing 5th overall, he comments: "It was a great experience to be able to be here and do what I love. Lots of great competition, and I look forward to continuing on."

A total of three medals were won by our Canadian sailors!

Congratulations to all the sailors who competed at this event, Canada sure feels proud!
