Allison Jolly and Lynne Jewell Shore became the first women to win an Olympic gold medal in sailing at the 1988 Olympic Games in South Korea.

The sailing competition of the '88 Games was the first time that a separate event was created exclusively for women athletes. The inaugural women's 470 Olympic competition featured teams from 21 nations. This historic performance earned them the Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year honors.

Gary Jobson chats with Allison and Lynne on The Starboard Portal to reflect on this breakthrough accomplishment and discuss how they are engaging with the sport of sailing today.
