Paddling since the late 80’s, Sylvain became a sea kayak coach with Paddle Canada (formerly CRCA) in 2001. Since 2002 he has been a FQCK instructor (Fédération québécoise du canot et du kayak), in which he also participates as a member of the program committee, improving and updating the official coaching guidelines. In addition, Sylvain has organized numerous winter biking/kayak excursions in Jamaica.
While his base is in Quebec, Sylvain is increasingly paddling in the exciting waters of Maine and Wales. His passion and endless desire to teach make Sylvain an avid and tireless learner.
