Sailing World Championships Update - Tom Ramshaw

Congratulations to SLYC/ RCYC sailor Tom Ramshaw for his 5th place result out of a fleet of 90 of the world’s best Finn sailors representing 42 nations at the Finn Gold Cup and World Sailing Championships event in Aarhus Denmark.

This result is a season best result at the world level for Tom and marks Canada’s best result across all fleets at these World Championships. The regatta saw a variety of sailing conditions including a gusty Race 10 with winds reaching 35 knots. The Finn regatta concluded Thursday August 9th with the top ten sailors participating in the Medal race.

With Tom’s success in Aarhus, he attained his goal and has procured for Canada one of the first 8 spots allocated in the Finn class at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.  

Well done Tom!
