Sophia takes Sailing Queen title

Sophia Jack is the new Caribbean Sailing Queen.
The 16-year-old lass of Stubbs, who represented St.Vincent in the Miss Caribbean Sailing Queen Pageant 2004, defeated Nedra Francis of Grenada, Alicia Williams of East St.George and Akeba Williams of Trinidad last Sunday night and claimed the coveted title.{{more}}
Wearing a beautiful green dress, Jack, an aspiring cosmetologist, strutted across the stage very gracefully to the delight of the large crowd who expressed their satisfaction with “ahs” and loud applause. She was adjudged the winner of the best evening gown.
More laurels were added to her crown when she won the Best Talent Category. With much humour, Jack, a student of the Carapan Secondary School, dramatised being a bride with a physical disability who faced rejection from society. On her wedding day, walking with a limp, and embracing arms with her husband-to-be, Jack elatedly said to the public that some people thought she would have never got a husband but they must remember, “Every mouldy bread has its own cheese.” The Canouan hard court came to life with loud laughter from the crowd.
“I feel relieved and good,” Jack told SEARCHLIGHT shortly after winning the competition. The fifth form student plans to write seven O’levels at CXC.
Her eyes are now set on entering the Miss SVG pageant.
Francis, who was very outstanding throughout the competition, had to settle for first runner-up. She claimed the best swimsuit and best interview categories.
The crowd was well entertained throughout the night by a dynamic performance from the band Rage.
