You might not be able to tell from this high up, but, that’s Greystones girl Pamela Lee down there.
And, as you may have guessed, sailing is a big thing for this particular Greystonian.
It’s a fact borne out this week with the news that Pamela is currently leading in the 50th Antigua Sailing Week, having won four out of five races so far.
Which, you know, is pretty damn good going.
A member of both Greystones Sailing Club and Lough Derg Yacht Club, Pamela is the daughter of the noted GP14 sailor Norman Lee, current boatswain here in the town. Oh, and Pamela’s aunt Monica is a world wayfarer champion.
Which may explain all this winning malarkey.
Today is the third day of the 50th Anitgua Sailing Week, and, just as with Greystones, the Carribean is having some glorious weather right now. Making conditions close to perfect for Pamela and the rest of the TP52 Conviction crew.
Having raced as a bowman for the last few years around the world – including several Sydney to Hobart races – the lovely Lee clearly knows what she’s doing.
Given that GG has never been out on a sailboat – ever – means we haven’t a clue what Lee is doing. Or how. Or why she keeps winning.
Suffice to say, we wish Pamela and the rest of the Conviction crew a glorious finish for their fifth race.
You can catch up with Pamela on the open seas in October 2020 here.
