Sail Canada would like to congratulate Terry McLaughlin on claiming the most prestigious award in Canadian sailing, the Rolex Sailor of the Year for 2013. It was a night of celebration for Terry and friends as he celebrates the 30-year anniversary of his Olympic silver medal with Flying Dutchman crew Evert Bastet. Evert was thrilled to be in attendance saying, 'Terry is always proud to fly the Canadian flag and sail for Canada.'

McLaughlin - 'It was a great honor to be nominated with such fine Canadian Sailors. Congratulations to John, Jackie and Al, your achievements over the last year were fantastic, and we all deserved to be here.'
