did she not have a top 2 or 3 finish within 3-5 hrs of the winner in a transatlantic in the last year?
Well, it looks like we like her more than the Ladies on this forum. Yes, it is an excellent sailor handicapped on this race by an older boat (2004) . It is a shame. The girls should have managed a way of getting her a fine boat. She would deserve that.
These are her race results. Many guys tried and did not manage to finish a Vendee Globe, well she finished one and in 4th place racing against 20 competitors. All those results are from duo or solo races and are not won against other girls but competing with the best solo sailors and a lots of them in each race.
