The Hempel World Cup will take place at the Allianz Regatta from May 31 to June 5 in Almere-Lelystad in the Netherlands.
Canadian sailor Sarah Douglas of Toronto, Ontario, will lead a Canadian team of eight sailors at the second World Sailing World Cup of the season in Almere-Lelystad, Netherlands, from May 31 to June 5.
During the first stage presented in April during the Princess Sofia Cup competition in Mallorca, Spain, Sarah Douglas won her first gold medal in the world sailing competition and this one, at ILCA 6.
Next week, she will compete in her class with fellow Canadians Coralie Vitticock, Clara Gravley and Maura Dewey. Marie-Yves Meyeran and Logan Sutherland will participate in the Formula Kite events, while Team Zoé Roosen and Nicolas Tosi will represent Canada at Nacra 17 in this competition that will feature nearly 400 athletes in several different classes, including nine parts of the Olympic programme.
“I can’t wait to compete again in the Netherlands,” said Sarah Douglas. “It is a new World Cup venue with a lot to learn. Sailing in Almera means small, rough and choppy waves, conditions that we are not used to doing very often. So it will be a new challenge and an opportunity to work on a different technology. I am always looking for new ways to learn and improve my skills.”
