Biography

Jerry Wilson had only recently joined the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club when he was selected, alongside Gard Boultbee, Kenneth Glass, and Philip Rogers, to represent Canada in the 6 metre class at the 1932 Summer Olympics. There they 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.
