Personal information
Born June 24, 1963

Pamela Katherine Healy (born June 24, 1963 in San Francisco, California) is a retired female sailor from the United States, who won a bronze medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. She did so in the 470 class, alongside Jennifer Isler.

Pam grew up sailing in the SF Bay Area. Her parents, John and Mary Poletti, sailed in the large (at the time) Cal-20 fleet. Pam learned to sail in her yellow El Toro named "Woodstock" with the likes of John Kostecki at the Richmond Yacht Club where she met her husband Craig Healy. Pam later was invited to become one of the first female members of the St. Francis Yacht Club at the age of 13 when the St. Francis had to let in a certain number of women if they wanted to keep their non-profit status because the yacht club is on U.S. Federal property in the Presidio.

Pam resides in Marin County with her husband, Craig, and their three children.
