... For the second year in a row, Deirdre Lambert has been named the Quantum Women’s Sailor of the Year. Lambert just won the Sperry Top-Sider Women’s Nationals with her team and she won A-division handily, 41 points ahead of second place. She has proven to be deserving of this honor.

“It’s really awesome and definitely a team success. It’s great, I couldn’t imagine this happening again,” Lambert says. She also adds, “It’s really great for our team to be National Champions again, too.”

Lambert fell in love with sailing at a young age when she learned to sail at Portland Yacht Club in Maine. She comes from a sailing family and has enjoyed competing at the collegiate level.

Lambert will be a senior next fall at Dartmouth, where she is studying biomedical engineering.
