Biography

Jay Glaser started sailmaking as a summer job while in college at UC Irvine, where he graduated from in 1976 with a degree in biology. Glaser joined with [Randy Smyth] to win back-to-back Tornado World Championships in 1982 and 1983 and then won silver at the 1984 Olympics. In 1987 Glaser opened Danger Sails to build catamaran and high-performance dinghy sails. Glaser later married [Sarah “Pease” Glaser], and together they sailed Tornados in the late 1980s and early 1990s, winning three North American and one US title, but did not qualify as a team for the 1992 or 1996 Olympics. Pease Glaser did make the 2000 Olympics, sailing a 470 with [JJ Isler], and winning a silver medal.

In 1993 Danger Sails merged with Ullman Sails of Newport Beach, California. In 2005, Glaser left the company to open Glaser Sails, focusing on developing championship sails for small, high performance boats.
