Montreal, September 23, 2014. From September 8 to 21 the ISAF 2014 World Championships was held in Santander, Spain. Athletes from Quebec were present for the Finn, RS-X and 49er FX classes. It is in the same class (49er FX) our athletes performed their best, as Heather Myatt and Arielle Morgan finished in 30th position.
Martin Robitaille in Finn and Laurence Bonneau Charland in RS-X were also present to represent the country.
These Championships were a first opportunity for countries to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games.
Canada secured two country qualification spots for Rio 2016 including the Laser and Laser Radial classes. Lee Parkhill (RCYC) & Isabella Bertold (RVYC) both sailed in gold fleet clinching spots for the red and white nation.
In 49er FX class, Heather and Arielle notably achieved 3rd and 8th place in the silver fleet with a net 86 ranking points. "We are really happy with our results, only a little disappointed not being able to race more," said Morgan in reference with difficult weather conditions forcing race committees to make some changes throughout the week.
