Biography

Lynne Jewell grew up sailing in California, but often sailed on the East Coast when she visited her grandparents in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where she often spent summers. She attended Boston University, graduating in 1981, and later lived in Rhode Island with her sailing partner and future husband, Bill Shore, although they would eventually divorce. Jewell won gold at the 1988 Seoul Olympics in the 470 class, sailing alongside [Allison Jolly]. She won International Yacht Racing Union championships in 1980 and 1984, and was named Rolex Yachtswomen of the year in 1980 and 1988. She was New York Yacht Club’s Yachtswoman of the Year in 1980 and the US Olympic Committee yachting athlete-of-the-year in 1984.

Jewell later earned a masters’ degree in education from Northeastern University. Although she trained for a career in the pharmaceutical industry, she changed course and then graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design’s interior design program, eventually working in interior design in sales and non-profit management. She is a member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association and the American Society of Interior Designers.
