Main Design
The most recent success of Jay's Tornado sails is undoubtedly a silver medal finish by Johnny Lovell and Charlie Ogletree at both the 2004 Athens Olympics and the 2004 Tornado Worlds. While working at Ullman Sails, Jay and Alison built mains and jibs for Johnny and Charlie as well as sails for the Puerto Rican and British teams.

Jay has a strong and steady commitment to the Tornado class both as an athlete and coach as well as sailmaker. He is a two-time World Champion, Olympic Silver medalist, seven-time North American Champion, and nine-time U.S. National Champion. He has coached Tornados at the last two Olympics and continues coaching elite sailors.

Jay's sail designs have been very successful. One year after opening Danger Sails, his Tornado sails won the Gold and Silver medals in the 1988 Olympics. After becoming a partner in Ullman Sails in 1993, Jay designed and sailed with those sails through 1996, and then coached and built sails through 2004.

Glaser Sails Tornado designs for 2005 for jib and spinnaker are the same as those used in the 2004 Olympics, while the main has been redesigned to fit the new carbon mast.
