Park City Sailing is excited to announce the second speaker of our 2017 Lecture Series. Sally Barkow is a globally renowned sailor. Her accomplishments include winning the prestigious Rolex Yachtswomen of the Year in 2015 and 2017, sailing in the grueling round-the-world Volvo Ocean race, competing in the Summer Olympics and becoming the Women’s World Match Racing Champion in 2004 and 2005.
The 2014/2015 Volvo Ocean race covered 38,739 miles of open ocean with half of the legs taking 20 days or more of non-stop racing. Sally was a member of Team SCA, making history as the first boat to compete as an all-woman team. This race is the Holy Grail of crewed racing and Sally and her team broke the “Glass Ceiling”.
