About

Gladiator is a well-known team owned and backed by successful, popular English businessman Tony Langley. This season they have returned to the Quantum Sails stable and brought on new navigator Ian Moore, and new or returning team members such as Andrew Estcourt, Simon Fry, Joey Newton and Nick Hutton

They are looking for a higher level of consistency in 2022 but like many of their contemporaries, struggle to hold on to the top level regularity which contributes to podium finishes. Their best season was probably 2017 when they finished the last regatta of the season in second place on countback.  

Langley has previously run three TP52s at the same time and enjoyed mixing up his team’s programme racing in the USA and at home in England at key, personal favourite events. But in 2022 it is the 52 SUPER SERIES which is their primary focus.

For the 2022 season GBR’s Olympic gold medallist Paul Goodison returns as tactician.

Tony loves his sport and must rank as the hardest working owner-drivers in this business!
