Vanessa’s parents have always owned a keelboat. When she was 9 years old, they signed her up for an Optimist Sailing day camp at the Baie De Beauport Yacht club. She then participated in the regional racing circuit, progressing to the Laser 2 and the Byte. She began seriously competing and after only one year in the Radial, she made it to the Québec Sailing Team as an “Espoir” athlete.
Vanessa placed 6th overall at the CYA Youth National Championships. Vanessa also participates in synchronized figure skating and is a full time student in Visual Arts.
