Congratulations to this year’s recipient, Gabriel Verrier-Paquette of Montreal. Gabriel switched to windsurfing in 2010 and has improved significantly in the field of men at all competitions he has attended over the past 3 years. He is a wonderful ambassador of the sport at events and in his home Province of Quebec. The CMWA was proud to be a sponsor for Gabriel at the World Juniors in Cypress this year. Congratulations and good luck in the remainder of your competitions this year. Read our newsletter later this year for a full report from Gabriel.
