Today was International Womens Day, and to celebrate I launched my Indiegogo campaign in support of my bid to become the first woman to win the OSTAR in its nearly sixty year history, as well as the first American woman to finish the race.
Today I thank all 30 woman who have lined up at the start of the OSTAR before me, those I have met and those I have only read about, for being such inspiring role models.
I also thank the many other talented solo and short-handed women sailors I have met in the course of racing, and who I now have the privilege of calling friends. I was about to try to list them all, but I don’t want to risk leaving anyone out. You know who you are! #SheInspiresMe
