Biography

Gilbert Gray was from New Orleans and, with Andrew Libano as his crew, he skippered Jupiter to a comfortable victory in the Star class at the 1932 Olympics. They represented the Southern Yacht Club of New Orleans. Winning five of seven races, Gray’s boat finished 11 points clear of the second-placed British entry. Gray joined the Southern Yacht Club when he was 17 because he wanted to swim at the club and attend the dances. Gray later won six straight championships in the Lipton Cup Regattas and in 1956 won the Sugar Bowl Race of Champions in the Fish Class. In 1978 he was inducted into the New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame. He worked as a draftsman for the shipbuilding industry and designed and built military craft during World War II.
