Biography

Thomas Weston took part in the only Olympic motorboating competition in 1908, when he was on board [Warwick Wright]’s Sea Dog in the 6-8 metre C-Class. They pushed fellow Briton [Thomas Thornycroft]’s Gyrinus in what was a close contest before Sea Dog suffered a mechanical fault and did not finish. But Weston’s involvement in the sport went beyond the Olympic Games because he was a journalist who became the editor of The Motor Boat magazine and served on the racing committee of the Marine Motoring Association. He was also on the committee of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Lawn Tennis Association. During World War I Weston served as a lieutenant in the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve.
