Having made his Olympic debut in the 470 at London 2012, Luke Ramsay is aiming to qualify for Rio 2016 in a new Olympic boat class, the Nacra 17, competing with Nikola Girke. In between he will make his Pan Am Games debut in the Sunfish, a single-handed dinghy. Early in his career Ramsay competed in another one-person dinghy, the Laser, and won the 2006 ISAF Youth World Championship. He competed at the 2008 Olympic team trials, but was beaten for the lone Canadian Laser berth in Beijing by Mike Leigh. Three years later he teamed up with Leigh in the 470. Despite Ramsay having never before sailed a double-handed boat and needing to lose more than 50lbs in four months to be competitive in the discipline, they went on to earn their spot on the 2012 Olympic team.
