Canadian Olympic Hopefuls in the 470 Class

Team Saunders is made up of Jacob and Graeme Saunders. The brothers are from Chester, Nova Scotia, Canada, and teamed up in the fall of 2009 for the first time. The team sails a 470, which is a double-handed centreboard boat. The 470 has been an Olympic Class since 1976 for men and 1988 for women, and is sailed in more than 60 countries worldwide.  Jacob and Graeme have qualified to represent Canada at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
