An avid sailor from Vancouver, Kyle was home-schooled from 2008-2011 until he enrolled at Quest in 2011. His main focus is on Math and Physics.
Kyle trains at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club. He is a member of the Canadian National Sailing Team, and currently trains full-time with the Canadian Finn Team. He recently transitioned to the Finn from the Laser Class.
Kyle is the top youth sailor in Canada and attends many international events. He documents his experience in blogs. The following is an excerpt:
“This is my third year competing at the ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami regatta and it was the best finish I have had yet. I finished 3rd in silver fleet and 43rd out of 70 bats that were entered. The regatta was held a week later this year, from January 28 to February 5. I flew down to Miami three days before the event stated, I was short of training time but it was the only way that I could make it work with school.” – Kyle Martin, ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami, http://kylemartinlasersailing.blogspot.ca/
