COACH

Emma DeSousa

CANSail 1 & 2, CANSail 3 & 4

My name is Emma. I live in Oakville but have spent my last 14 summers cottaging
on beautiful Georgian Bay. I was introduced to sailing when I was 7 years old on my
grandfather’s keel boat, igniting my passion for the sport. I began sailing at the
Midland Bay Sailing Club in 2012, acquiring my CANSail 1 & 2, CANSail 3 & 4 and
Spinnaker & Trapeze 1 & 2. In 2016, I trained to become a certified 3 & 4 Instructor and
have thoroughly enjoyed sharing my passion and knowledge of sailing with other sailors
over the past two summers.
I enjoy many sports. I play on my school’s field hockey, volleyball and track and field
teams. I play Rep volleyball outside of school and have been recruited to play with the
University of Windsor Lancers for Fall 2019.
I love the outdoors and the confidence sailing has brought me. I’m looking forward to
coaching sailors of all ages learn and advance their skills.
