Youth
Bill spent his summers in the junior sailing program at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, working his way up the program as fast as his instructors would allow. After a successful junior racing career, highlighted by representing Canada at the ISAF Volvo Youth Worlds in 2005, he moved into sailing 49ers.

After his stint on the Canadian National Team, he transitioned into sailing professionally in 2012. Over a decade of experience as a professional, he has garnered a reputation among his co-workers as a skilled, hard-working and reliable teammate.
