Guide Bio

Ellia was lucky enough to grow up in an environment of avid sailors – starting from the time she moved to Thunder Bay at the age of six. Even when too small to pull the lines she could be found in the bunks, always on the windward side for weight balance and helping the boat race along. She began sailing small dingys at 8 and at 11 she took a year off formal school and travelled with her family on a 15,000 mile sailing trip to Europe, the Caribbean and back. Education was done on the boat and in ports along the way. When physically strong enough, Ellia began to take on a more active role of sailing the 40-footer, practicing and racing until she was old enough to pass her Masters sailing licence in 2013. Ellia is now the captain for Harbour Tours and Welcome Island excursions.
