ADF Update: Phoebe Tufts

This is my first year of racing on the RCYC C420 Race team. Going into grade 11 this fall, I am using my summer to improve skippering and communication skills with my talented crew Cate. I’ve been sailing ever since I was little on my grandmother's boat, Capilano, at RCYC. I enjoyed my summers spent at Junior Club. Though new to racing, I have thoroughly enjoyed the regattas and races this year.

Our first regatta of the season, Icebreakers at TS&CC, was my first ever first-place finish, and since then the season has been going really well. We had a second-place finish at Lilac, a third at National and an eighth at Sarnia Yacht Club out of 50 boats! I am truly grateful for the friends, support, and skills I have learned this summer. I am looking forward to representing RCYC in the final two Grand Prix Regattas. In the future, I hope to coach young racers to develop their love of sailing.

In closing, I would like to acknowledge my appreciation for the support from the ADF Fund which helped me to pay for some important entry fees! Thank you so much.
