Sir Thomas Coats Glen Glen-Coats, 2nd Baronet (5 May 1878, in Paisley – 7 March 1954, in Glasgow) was a Scottish sailor who competed for the Royal Clyde Yacht Club in the 12 metre class at the 1908 Summer Olympics.
The 12-Metre Heatherbell was designed by Thomas C Glenn-Coates (skipper) for Major Andrew Coates and built by Alexander Robertson and Sons Ltd (Yachtbuilders) in 1907. She was the first yacht in the new metre-class to be built in the UK. The 'Coates' name (textile/thread dynasty of Paisley) became well known for racing 8-Metres on the Clyde, between 1911 and 1938. Heatherbell later represented Finland in the 1912 Helsinki Summer Olympics.
On his father's death in 1922 he became a baronet. The baronetcy became extinct on his death.
