Sailor Chick of the Week
Double Gold Medalist Shirley Robertson won the cracking iShares Cup in Lugano last weekend, beating up on all the guys in what is easily the most high-performance one-design ever built. Shirley’s JP Morgan team won over Team Origin with the most successful X40 skipper on the planet, Rob Greenhalgh, at the helm. She also beat Alinghi, who’ve had huge amounts of training in the 40 with every possible scrap of talent getting them up to speed.
As Anarchist DryArmour pointed out when comparing her to open-wheel racer Danica Patrick, she’s hot too, in a Meg Ryan sort of way. That’s some serious game, and she’s earned SA’s top honor.
