Why You Should Get Sailing

Why You Should Get Sailing

Plain and simple. This talk is about why if you are not sailing, you are missing out. Regardless of age, wealth, or skill there is something in sailing for everyone. Sailing can be any combination of competitive, social, exploration, family-oriented, thrilling, or relaxing. My goal of this talk is to keep it interesting and hopefully inspire you to get sailing.


Geordie began his sailing career taking trips with his father on their 27ft keelboat. Since then he has gone on to race competitively in several dinghy classes, become a sailing instructor and eventually learning facilitator with the Ontario Sailing Association. Geordie graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University (BBA) where he founded the Laurier Sailing Team and was the president of the Canadian Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (CICSA). Recently, his university team qualified for the Student Yachting World Cup and represented team Canada in Marseille, France finishing 6 th in the world.
