McRoberts 4th – 2022 RS Venture World Championship

McRoberts 4th – 2022 RS Venture World Championship

John McRoberts, Paralympic sailor from British Columbia and his crew Scott Lutes; finished in 4th at the 2022 RS Venture Connect World Championship. The Barcelo Resort in Mussanah, Oman hosted the RS Venture Connect World Championships from November 24-27th.


McRoberts competed at his fourth Paralympic Games and won the silver medal with Jackie Gay in 2016. He also won a bronze medal in the two-person event during the Beijing Paralympic Games in 2008 and placed fourth at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.


McRoberts says, “I’ve had the privilege to represent Canada in 4 Paralympics and receiving three medals, it’s a true honour for to wear the Maple Leaf. I’ve attended the last 2 RS Venture Connect Worlds and am really enjoying the boat and racing format. I have to say it’s great having the boats supplied. RS does a great job supplying and preparing the boats so that the sailors just have to go racing, a dream come true.”


Congratulations John & Scott!
