USA’s Sally Barkow (Nashotah, Wis.) and teammates Alanna O’Reilly, Elizabeth Kratzig and Suzy Leech claimed the silver medal today at the ISAF Women’s Match Racing World Championship in a thrilling five-race match against eventual champion Lucy MacGregor (GBR).

US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics’ Team Tulloch – Genny Tulloch (San Francisco, Calif.), Alice Manard, Liz Hall and Jennifer Chamberlain – finished in fifth overall while US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics’ Team Tunnicliffe – Anna Tunnicliffe (Plantation, Fla.), Molly Vandemoer, Debbie Capozzi and Liz Bower – finished in ninth. The 2010 ISAF Women’s Match Racing World Championship was hosted by New York Yacht Club, in Newport, R.I., from September 21-25, and a total of 20 teams representing 14 countries competed.

'We didn’t walk away with the championship, but our goal was to be in the top two and we achieved that,' said Barkow, who has qualified for the 2011 US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics. 'We had a really good day. We went all the way to five races against Lucy, and they were all really tough (races).'

Barkow defeated Australia’s Nicky Souter in three straight races to advance to the final match against MacGregor, who defeated France’s Claire Leroy, 3-1. Souter went on to defeat Leroy in the Petit-Final Round, 2-1.
For USA’s women’s match racing program, this week has been a strong showing against an international fleet. 'This is one of our most competitive classes in the U.S.,' said Olympic Sailing Committee Chair Dean Brenner (Wallingford, Conn.). 'We like the fact that we had three strong teams competing here. If you look at the results from this year, each of our three teams has had great results, and in many instances they have had wins against each other.'

Next up for Barkow is a crew position with Team Tunnicliffe at the Bermuda Gold Cup, scheduled for October 5-10.

And her sceptical response... Hoh! Daddy, Hoh!

Can World Sailing learn from dear old Oz?
Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint Some time ago now, Sail-World proposed that ISAF had a really good opportunity at hand when it morphed into World Sailing (WS). Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint, when you could bring out the jackhammers and do a proper reno??? A call was issued for 200,000 sets of goggles and earmuffs to be supplied and for the real work to be commenced.

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
