Exciting Times Lie Ahead in the World of Sailing for Canada in 2024

In 2024, Barcelona is set to host the first-ever Puig Women’s America’s Cup and the fourth edition of the Youth America’s Cup, alongside the highly anticipated 37th edition of the prestigious America’s Cup. Canada is proud to be part of this exciting event, competing against eleven other nations in both the Women’s and Youth regattas. This international platform provides an extraordinary opportunity to highlight the exceptional talent and potential of our female Canadian sailors, empowering them to make their mark in the sailing world. Moreover, it demonstrates Canada’s dedication to nurturing and fostering our young athletes, preparing them for future success as Canada’s next generation of Olympic champions and competitors in upcoming America’s Cup challenges.

Team Canada

Two Teams

Team Canada consists of two distinct squads: the Women’s team and the Youth team. The athletes will train together but compete in separate races. The Women’s team, composed of a crew of four, competes during the America’s Cup Final series in early October 2024 and is led by Isabella Bertold. Andrew Wood is the Youth Team Lead, and similar to the Women, the team is a four-person crew. Both teams will engage in fleet racing, followed by a match race series for the top two countries. The Youth event happens in late September 2024 alongside the America’s Cup Challenger series.

Overseeing Team Canada is CEO Jim Turner, a highly accomplished sailor from New Zealand with over 20 years of America’s Cup experience.

Team Canada’s goal is to win the first-ever Women’s America’s Cup and the Youth America’s Cup regattas in Barcelona 2024, inspiring greater participation, excellence and pride across Canada.



Women and Sailing

Canada's all-female AC40 crew, led by Isabella Bertold, eagerly prepares for the historic Puig Women's America's Cup in Barcelona. They aspire to inspire, break barriers, and sail to glory.
