Abe began sailing at age 9 when he enrolled for fun in a summer learn-to-sail program at Kitsilano Yacht Club and at Jericho Yacht Club. He really enjoyed being on the water and the challenges of the practice races. CST member Lisa Ross suggested that if he wanted even more of a challenge he should join the RVYC team, coached by Tine Moberg Parker. Tine welcomed Abe on the team and inspired him to keep sailing and to get involved in competition. Abe’s other interests include reading, skiing, and cycling.
