Ross Macdonald began sailing while cruising with his family aboard their Alberg 30 when he was 4y/o.  Growing up in Vancouver, his teenage summers were enjoyed racing Optimists, FJ’s, 505’s and Lasers. At aged 19 Ross began competing in the Olympic Star Class where over the course of the next 2 decades he competed in 5 Olympic Games, winning 2 Olympic medals, a World title and numerous European and North American Championships.  

Ross began working with Vince Brun at North Sails One Design back in ‘94 and has been with the Vancouver loft since 2010.  With his client’s teams he’s been fortunate enough to compete all over the World on the TP-52, J-Class, 6 Metre, Melges 24 & 32 circuits.  In addition Ross has raced the majority of the top Offshore events including the Round the World Race.  

His accomplishments have earned him the honour of being named Rolex Sailor of the Year 3 times and B.C. Athlete of the Year in 2004.
