Taylor Canfield

US Virgin Islands
WS Ranking 1
Team: US One

Ranked #1 in the World Sailing Open Match Race Ranking
Active match racer and professional sailor. Taylor has spent the last few years focusing on match racing with US One Sailing Team on the WMRT, with the goal of competing in the America's Cup. Having been a tour cardholder in 2013 he won the World Match Race Tour Championship as the rookie team on the tour. On the side, he is actively competing in the Etchells, J70, Melges 20, Melges 24 and Farr 40 classes.

Taylor made the switch to multihulls (M32) in 2015 with expectations of competing on the WMRT in 2016. After winning the M32 Miami Winter Series and M32 Scandinavian Series in 2015, the team went on to win 3 out of 5 WMRT events in 2016 and placed 2nd at the WMRT Championship. Congressional Cup has also been a very bright spot in Taylor's march to the top of the leader board. Winning in 2014, 2015 and again in 2016 he is back to defend his title and to, hopefully, pick up a fourth
consecutive Crimson Blazer, a Congressional Cup record.
