A Sailing Family Story: “The House of Starck”
with Jody and David Starck

As one of the most prominent sailing families in our country, Jody and David Starck have been shortlisted for the Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year awards five times and have three Rolex Awards combined. They have won three Lightning North American Championships, earned College All-American honors three times, and together they won the Lightning World Championship and a PanAm Games Silver Medal. 

However, in the Starck house, it all starts and ends with Family Sailing! They grew up together in Ridgeway, Ontario at Buffalo Canoe Club, and now they have two daughters in junior sailing programs.

Fun, Experience, and Family is what it's all about!
