Day four – Tuesday, August 6 -  delivered a consistent breeze throughout the day allowing all Canadian sailors to hit the water by noon.

Our Pan Am medalist Luke Ramsay of Vancouver (Sunfish  – Toronto 2015, silver) and Olympic (470 - London 2012, Nacra 17 - Rio 2016) veteran, Luke Ramsay, made his way up the scoreboard today. With 2nd, 1st, and 3rd place finishes, Luke now sits at the top of the fleet standing 1st overall.

While being at games isn’t something new, Luke says being on the water makes him feel like a kid again, “I’m just enjoying the fight on the water every day.”
