The name of Algernon Maudslay does not appear in many of the early Olympic reference books but research has shown that he was definitely the helmsman aboard Scotia at the 1900 Olympics. Maudslay, who was educated privately, was a prominent yachtsman of the time and a member of the Royal Thames Yacht Club, the Royal London Yacht Club and the Royal Yacht Squadron. He also served as Hon. Treasurer of the Yacht Racing Association from 1927 until his death. Much of his life was devoted to British and International Red Cross and Relief Organizations and in 1919 he was awarded the CBE for his work with the War Refugees Committee.
