Making Broader Reach possible

Jacob Saunders

I am a volunteer instructor for Broader Reach. I am passionate about making sailing more accessible, and giving back to the community that supported my Olympic aspirations for many years.

I grew up in Chester, NS where I joined the CYC learn to sail program at the age of 10. I quickly took to racing and went on to win several National and North American titles in various dinghy classes. My racing career culminated with performances at the 2016 and 2020 Olympics in the 470 class, a two-person dinghy. 

I am involved in the keelboat racing and cruising scene in both Halifax and Chester and enjoy coaching and sharing my experience with youth and adults.
