Courtenay Becker, J.J. Isler, Jody Swanson, Dawn Riley, Cathy Chapin, Jackie Golison--those names might soon be as familiar in sailing as Topsiders and Catalina. Female sailors have earned respect in this country. Allison Jolly and Lynne Jewell won America's only Olympic sailing gold medal in severe conditions at Pusan, South Korea, in 1988. The others will compete in the U.S. Women's Championships Saturday through next Tuesday at Coronado.

In France, they lighted the sky with fireworks for Ellen MacArthur, the youngest sailor and first woman to circumnavigate the world alone. Britain raised Tower Bridge for her triumphant return after she completed the French Vendee Globe solo race, while the press hailed the 24-year-old as a conquering hero in the tradition of Charles Lindbergh and Sir Edmund Hillary. And this was for coming in second. Pity the poor Frenchman who won the toughest race in sailing last month.

It was a little after 8 p.m. and the eight-woman crew of the Stella Maris must have been thinking about the gourmet scampi-and-fettuccine dinner being prepared in the galley. It was the crew's first overnight practice run on the 40-foot sloop and Jane Golding was taking her turn at the helm, her eyes riveted on the compass. Skipper Bonnie Gibson was below deck, adjusting the stove.

When Tracy Edwards of England rounded up 11 friends to sail in a race around the world, some in the yacht set nudged one another and made jokes about Gidget Goes to Sea. They wished her luck, waved her off--and put the Coast Guard on alert. When she drove her 58-foot sailboat Maiden toward the icebergs, gales, four-story seas and other horrors of the Southern Ocean, they paled: This had gone far enough. Not quite. She and her crew had thousands of miles to go before they rested. On Sept.

Two events off Newport Beach recently indicated that the competitive gap between male and female sailors may be closing. Sue Franta of Balboa Yacht Club, sailing the Olson 30 Mas Rapido, posted a second and then three firsts in winning the Women's Ocean Racing Series' 10th annual championship last weekend. The women sailed nine boats in four races and used spinnakers.

During the 20 years that Gail Hine has been sailing, she has seen the number of female sailors increase steadily each year, but Hine believes there is plenty of room on the ocean for more women. That is why Hine is organizing Southern California's first women's sailing convention, a one-day event open to all Southern California women interested in sailing. The convention, to be held next Saturday in San Pedro, is sponsored by the Southern California Yachting Assn.

Placentia's Michele Granger pitched two no-hitters in the 1991 U.S. Olympic Festival women's softball competition, but she also finished with a mediocre--by her lofty standards--3-3 record and a silver medal instead of a gold. The Raybestos Brakettes of Stratford, Conn., the East representative, managed an almost unheard of seven hits off Granger Wednesday night in a 5-1 victory in the championship game. It was the Brakettes' third consecutive Festival championship.
