Ryan’s dedication to coaching has allowed young athletes from all over Nova Scotia to develop a deep love for the sport. His rich experience in Laser guaranteed the technical knowledge he is able to pass over younger generations, but he has also succeeded in delivering such knowledge with fun, joy and inspiration to the athletes.
During the challenging 2020 season, Ryan was very successful in keeping racing youth sailors engaged and pushing their training despite their racing calendar being suspended. These experiences have made RNSYS athletes develop not only sailing skills, but life skills.
Ryan has been a great mentor and role model in teaching his athletes how to maintain their boats and fitness in the best condition to optimize performance at competitions.
His discipline and passion for the sport has and will continue inspiring and developing Nova Scotia’s young generations.
