19 year old Stephanie Devaux-Lovell is currently representing St Lucia at the Miami Olympic Classes Regatta, a qualifying event for the Pan American Games which will be held later this year. It's also an essential qualifying event for the 2016 Olympic Games.
There are 3 places available still for the Pan Ams and according to her coach, Beth Lygoe, Stephanie is well prepared and well motivated to take one of these places at this regatta.
After the first day of sailing on Monday, the youing Saint Lucian sailor finished in positions 23 and 26, leaving her in second place as a far as the Pan Am Games qualifying is concerned.
The weather forecast indicates that the wind should get lighter as the week progresses, which would mean conditions more favourable to Stephanie's style of sailing
