Maybe you Ladies don't know about Samantha, more known as Sam. She is sailing and I guess that she deserves your support and attention....I am a fan;)

did she not have a top 2 or 3 finish within 3-5 hrs of the winner in a transatlantic in the last year?

Excellent sailor!

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.

Paulo,
Clarification, is a "2eme" a 2nd place finish? likewise a 4eme a 4th? I have not seen that verbage/written term used.

I had copy and past that. That is just a bad translation (and I did not noticed) 2eme is clearly deuxième and so on. That's French;)

BIG FAN!!!!

I'm even following her daily on the Vendee Globe App on my smartphone. She's currently 13th and 280 NM behind the leader. But hey... It's REALLY REALLY early in the race.:D
