Twenty-four boats competed across four days of intense but fun competition at the first North American Championships held in Canada.

Kingston, Ontario, was the venue for this event, and it didn't disappoint with 3 days of classic WASZP conditions. Great breezes of over 20knots greeted competitors and provided the base for some insane racing.

American brothers Conner and Sam Blouin completed the double with 1st and 2nd places while Canadian up-and-comer Galen Richardson showed great speed and boat handling to finish 3rd.

The Canadian fleet is showing unprecedented growth, with the WE CAN FOIL program in full swing, the Canada SailGP initiative is shaping the future of the sport in Canada.
