Biography

One of Canada’s most accomplished sailors, Terry McLaughlin had his best competitive years in the 1980s. After winning the 1980 World Championships in the Flying Dutchman class with Evert Bastet, he was selected to represent Canada at that year’s Summer Olympics, but stayed home after his country boycotted those Games. In 1983 he skipped Canada I, the nation’s entry into that year’s Louis Vuitton Cup, which determines the challenger for the America’s Cup. The following year he and Bastet were again chosen for the Summer Olympics, where they won a silver medal. This was arguably the pinnacle of McLaughlin’s sailing career although, as of 2013, he still competes in numerous regattas every year with the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. Most notably, he has won Canada’s prestigious York Cup five times. His brother Frank was a bronze medalist in the Flying Dutchman class at the 1988 Summer Olympics.
