Biography

Philip Rogers was the helmsman of the crew chosen to represent Canada in sailing’s 6 metre class at the 1932 Summer Olympics. Alongside Gard Boultbee, Kenneth Glass, and Gerald Wilson, he lost the first four races and, with no hope of catching up, dropped out of the last two. As there were only three nations competing, however, the Canadians took home a bronze medal. Rogers’ family had a history of being involved with the administration of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, where his father Benjamin had served as Commodore from 1912 through 1918, and Philip took up sailing at a young age, often racing alongside his brothers Ernest and Forrest. A graduate of McGill University, Philip was involved in the sugar industry and served as president of his family’s British Columbia Sugar Refining Company and its subsidiary Canadian Sugar Factories until his death in June 1961.
