Since competing in the 2016 Olympic Games, Brenda Bowskill has continued to make gains as she remains laser focused on her goal of representing Canada a second time at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Her continuous dedication in training showed at the 2017 Laser Radial World Championship in Medemblik, Netherlands, where she placed fifth, solidifying a Canadian record at this event.

Over the last year, Brenda has been working tirelessly in the gym and on the water, while also taking the time to complete her final semester of Nursing at Ryerson University. Her ability to tackle both of her goals with determination and drive is a testament to her strong character.

Brenda was presented with an exquisite watch from Rolex Canada.Congratulations to Brenda Bowskill and all the Rolex Sailor of the Year Finalists including, Al Clark and Rossi Milev.

These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
