Story


The Nova Scotia trio of Glen Dexter, Andreas Josenhans and Sandy MacMillian were the youngest of the Olympic sailing crews at the Montreal 1976 Olympics. They placed 8th. Undaunted, they continued to compete and found success at the World Sailing Championships in Hanko, Norway in July of 1977. In their yacht, Delusions, they handily beat sixty eight crews from 18 nations taking only 58.4 penalty points in the 7-race series. The Dexter crew went on to win the world title again in 1980, after placing second in 1978.
