About

Gladiator is a well-known team owned and backed by successful, popular English businessman Tony Langley. They continue to make improvements to their all round performance although, like many of their contemporaries, struggle to hold on to the top level consistency 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 runs three TP52s and currently enjoys mixing up his team’s programme, also racing in the USA and at home in England at key, personal favourite events.

Over the years owner driver Langley has embraced the idea of bringing on young talent rather than just hiring in top guns. In 2019 he often sailed as tactician with Andy Beadsworth steering. In 2020 he alternated the steering with double Olympic gold medallist Iain Percy sharing the duties as they see fit.

For the 2021 season Gladiator have two of Britain’s top sailing talents in the afterguard in the shape of both Paul Goodison and double Finn gold medallist Giles Scott.

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