|Sailor Chick of the Week
Charleston-based rock star and new Melges 24 North American Champion crew Amy Ironmonger is an adorable, petite blonde, and she’s proven over and over that skill and attitude are what gets her onto the top Farr 40, Mumm 30, and Melges 24 teams. Amy’s been called "the glue that holds the team together" and she says, "I just concentrate on being positive all the time." Attitude will only take one so far, though – and Amy’s got scars to prove how hard she pulls and permanently damaged ribs as a result of being one of the hardest-hiking sailors ever. There are plenty of good shots of Amy in our OTW Anarchy thread from Annapolis, but here’s a good interview that gives you some insight to what keeps this full-time law student sailing at this top level.
