Evan came up through the youth sailing program at the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club. Sailing primarily C420’s, he quickly became involved in the competitive racing scene. In 2013 he placed as the top youth male team at the infamous Canadian Olympic Regatta of Kingston (CORK). Spending a year taking time away from serious competition, he sailed laser radial as he looked to transition into an olympic class boat. Drawn by the speed and the caliber of sailors, Evan partnered with fellow RHYC local Will Jones in the 49er. As the crew, there is a large focus on fitness to meet the physical demands of 49er sailing. Evan has a strong passion for this field as he has studied Fitness and Health Promotion in Kingston, Ontario.
