A former Match Racing World Champion in 2013, number one World Sailing ranked match racer for three of the past five years, four-time winner of the Crimson Blazer at the Congressional Cup, two-time winner of the Argo Group Gold Cup and winner of countless World Match Racing Tour events in both monohull and multihulls, Taylor Canfield is a formidable name in the world of modern match racing.

Taylor first made his name in Optimist dinghy sailing out of his home, St. Thomas Yacht Club in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Following an all-American collegiate sailing career, Taylor stormed on the World Match Racing Tour in 2012 with his US One team and quickly advanced to win the Tour and become Match Racing World Champion in 2013.

In anticipation of  WMRT moving to include multihulls on the Tour in 2016, Taylor’s US One team ran a campaign in the 2015 M32 Scandinavian Series winning the series by a comfortable margin. The team narrowly missed out on the 2016 Match Racing World Championship finishing in 2nd place behind Phil Robertson of New Zealand.

Taylor finished 3rd on the WMRT leaderboard in 2017 before embarking on possibly his biggest sailing challenge. After winning the 2018 Congressional Cup, in December 2018, the Long Beach Yacht Club, announced its entry, Stars & Stripes Team USA, was formally accepted by the Defender and Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron as the fifth Challenger of the 36th America’s Cup. Canfield co-founded the team with fellow professional American sailor, Mike Buckley.

While building the America’s Cup team for a 2021 challenge in Auckland 2021, Taylor also joined the USA team competing in the SailGP circuit launched in 2019.
