Canadian sailors, lead by Coach Fede Donzino, had a strong presence this past weekend at the 2019 Bermuda National Optimist Championship. Thomas Desrochers ranked 7th overall, followed by team-mates Owen Gormly (21rst), Carlos Charabati (28th), Andrew Chisholm (35th) and Dylan Finch (39th). There were 118 sailors (56 in the open fleet) from 5 different countries. Bermuda proved to be a challenging and beautiful place to sail with various types of weather and winds upwards of 25 knots. The regatta was won by local Bermuda sailor Christian Ebbin.
