If you have been watching sailing Youtube channels then you are probably aware that there are a lot of us across the globe. However, it's seemed to me that the Canadian content out there kind of has a hard time being seen, despite the fact that there are a lot of us making videos. So, I decided to compile a list of all the channels I could find of Canadians sailing in Canadian waters, or Canadians sailing abroad, to get the world out about more of the awesome channels available to us. We have so many amazing places to cruise in Canada and I think more of the world should see what we have to offer in our own backyard! Each of us has our own style and showcases a different side of the sailing and liveaboard lifestyle. Hopefully you can find a few channels that you connect with and love to watch in this list!
The list below is divided into those in Canada and the region they are currently sailing, and then those Canadians who are sailing abroad. There is also a short list of non- sailing boaters in Canada at the bottom, cuz sometimes we wanna see other things too, right? :)
