Q & A with aspiring Olympic sailor, Sarah Douglas

Although summer may seem miles away, I thought I would get you a little excited about those hot days by introducing you to sailing. Now I am not talking about the captain’s hat and booze cruising sailing, I am talking about the physically demanding, mentally challenging, Olympic class sailing.

Sailing seems to have been in my life for as long as I can remember. My dad is a sailor, and a pretty great one at that.  I am pretty thankful that he chucked me in a boat at a young age, and although I may have lost my favourite pink flamingo hat one my first outing, I soon fell in love with it and it has become part of my identity.  

The sailing community in Canada is so close knit, and I was lucky enough to cross paths with Sarah Douglas a few years back when I was working in Toronto as the head coach at a sailing club there. At the time she was on the Ontario Sailing Team and I have been so excited to see her progress and be a total inspiration to young sailors across the country.

I was able to steal some time in her very busy schedule to get some questions in, and I hope you enjoy virtually meeting Sarah!
