HISTORY: Where Are They Now?
Published on April 3rd, 2013
Since 2003, the Quantum Woman Collegiate Sailor of the Year award has honored a female sailor performing at the highest level in district and national championships. Corrie Clement Lambert, who won the inaugural award in 2003 while sailing for Old Dominion University, is now a physical therapist living in Seabrook, TX.
Corrie continues to sail on anything and everything. The depth of Galveston Bay limits her options, but she’s been able to race J/22s, V15s, OD35s, and the 2011 J-105 North Americans. Corrie credits her experience at the Rolex International Women’s Keelboat Championship with introducing her to keelboat racing.
Since college, Corrie has spent some time coaching, including a stint as the head coach for Norfolk Collegiate. She also occasionally coaches in Seabrook, introducing kids to Laser sailing. She just purchased a Sunfish to do the Wednesday night races in Seabrook, saying “It is a lot different than a Laser Radial, but should be fun!”
Corrie’s collegiate sailing not only helped develop her teamwork and leadership skills, it also prepared her for her career. Sailing with different people and different learning styles translates well for her work as a physical therapist.
She encourages all collegiate sailors to not be intimidated by sailing on different boats with new people. Instead, try to learn something new every time you go out.
