He sailed for Canada at the Olympics
By Tom HAWTHORN, Wednesday, November 23, 2005, Page S9
Kingston, Ontario -- Donald TYTLER, who sailed for Canada in two Olympic regattas, has died at Kingston, Ontario He was 81.
In 1952, Mr. TYTLER joined skipper Bill GOODERHAM and other crewmen aboard the six-metre Canadian yacht Trickson VI in the waters off Finland's Harmaja lighthouse. The crew finished seventh overall in an event won by Americans aboard Llanoria. The Canadians' best result came with a second-place finish, three minutes behind Llanoria, on the fourth of seven race days. It was a day of gentle but constantly changing winds that demanded immediate decisions about sails.
Mr. TYTLER returned to Olympic competition in 1956, joining helmsman Dave HOWARD and his brother Cliff HOWARD on Tomahawk III. The Dragon-class racing sloop was sailed from Toronto to Montreal, where it travelled to Australia as deck cargo on a freighter. The journey lasted seven weeks.
Racing in the open waters of Port Phillip Bay, outside Melbourne, the Canadian crew finished eighth in the Dragon competition.
While his crews were competitive if not victorious at the Olympics, Mr. TYTLER could claim a share of the North American six-metre championship in 1954. He joined a Royal Canadian Yacht Club crew skippered by Mr. GOODERHAM aboard Buzzy II, which defeated 12 other crafts in three days of racing on Lake Ontario. The sailors were awarded The Globe and Mail Trophy by the newspaper's publisher.
Donald Milne TYTLER was born in Toronto on March 8, 1925. During the Second World War, he served in the navy. In 1949, he graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in mechanical engineering and worked for the Toronto school board for 20 years. He died at Kingston General Hospital on November 15.
