Born a sailor, Martin started to race at the young age of 11. It did not take long before he switched to the Finn. At 17 years old Martin moved to Toronto to study mechanical engineering and to train with the National Team, where he became the youngest qualifying member of the team just weeks before his 18th birthday.

Two years later, Martin went on to win the Junior World Championships. Having the opportunity to compete at the highest level and to train alongside Olympic medalists helped him to understand what it takes to be a world class sailor. 

After seven years on the National Team and three Olympic campaigns, Martin decided to head back to Montreal to complete his engineering degree and to spend more quality time at home with his supportive family. 

After returning home, Martin was looking for a new way to share his love for sailing by growing the sport in North America. While completing his degree, he had the opportunity to buy the right of distribution for a sailing brand and was able to grow the business exponentially. Martin’s passion, knowledge and drive made all the difference in building his company. For him, it is not about the technicalities of the sport, but more about sharing how fast, fun and simple sailing can be. No better fit for him than joining Team Dragonfly, as our local dealer in Canada!

Martin speaks both French and English.
