On February 1st, 2017, a full table of NCASA sailors and supporters gathered at Algonquin College for the Ottawa Sports Award. We were all there to cheer Shaylagh Ley who was recognised for her achievements in sailing during the summer 2016.
Shaylagh has been sailing for three years. In 2016, at 16 years of age, she placed first in the silver fleet event at the Mobility Cup. At this regatta, she defeated 22 sailors from all across Canada and two from the U.S. Shaylagh also finished second in the Quebec Disabled Sailing Championships against a field of 14 competitors.
Congratulations Shaylagh, you are making all of us very proud!
