Get To Know Your Local Team Member

Sarah Unwin joined North Sails a year and a half ago as the office manager of North Sails Vancouver. She is born and raised in Vancouver at 38 years old. She first learned to sail in an Opti at RVYC summer sailing program. Sarah was 16 when she competed in her first race, Silva Bay Layover on a Dragon with her now Husband, James.

What is your favourite local regatta/race and why?

Round Bowen, it is such a fun race and has a great party!

Where is your favourite spot to go cruising and why?

Desolation Sound, I have been cruising in Desolation Sound since childhood and you can’t beat the beaches, scenery and wildlife.

What is it about sailing that you enjoy the most?

You are always learning and the freedom of cruising to places most people have never visited. B.C. has some of the best cruising grounds in the world and we feel very fortunate to be able to explore the B.C. coast.

What activities do you enjoy outside of sailing?

My husband, James, and I are avid skiers.

How have you been keeping busy since all racing has been cancelled?

We have been doing boat work and going for day sails. We look forward to racing and cruising again.
