The youngest of four sisters, Patricia was raised by a single mother in Larchmont, NY, who instilled in all her daughters their late US Navy father’s love of sailing.
Thanks to her family, and to a number of mentors along the way, Patricia has been a competitive sailor since the age of seven, racing in dinghies, one-design keelboats and racer/cruisers on both sides of the Atlantic. Her experience includes offshore, inshore and team racing regattas in Ireland, England, Bermuda, Mexico, the US Virgin Islands and throughout the US. She is a former US SAILING National Umpire and is currently a US SAILING National Judge and World Sailing International Judge, as well as race committee and regatta management volunteer for a number of organizations.
A resident of Newport, RI, since 1998, she is a member of the New York, Larchmont, and Ida Lewis Yacht Clubs. When not on the water, Patricia is a Supervisory Analyst with Morgan Stanley & Co.
