42nd Trofeo SAR Princesa Sofia - Anna Tunnicliffe updates us on Team Tunniliffe's medal race from Palma, Spain.

We won the bronze medal today at 42 Trofeo S.A.R Princesa Sofia Mapfre, with a 2-0 win over France's Claire Leroy in the petit-finals. Our USSTAG teammates won the gold, with Team Finland in silver.

We headed out to the race course around 11:00 am as the light sea breeze started to fill. We had another beautiful day on the water with seven to eight knots and a slight chop. The petit-finals were the first start and it was a first-to-two point series. We won both of the starts and managed to extend our lead up the first beat to make the races not nearly as eventful as yesterday's. However, we are very happy with how we sailed the races today and are excited to come away from this week with a bronze. You can check out the final regatta results at the event website.

We have a week off now before we start training again. Our next camp is in Weymouth with our other two USSTAG teammates. Molly and Deb are heading home for the week, and I am heading to France with Brad for the week as he continues his training.

We would like to thank our gold level sponsor 11th Hour Racing, and our bronze level sponsors Carmeuse, Trinity Yachts, and Chicago Match Race Center for their continued support of our campaign for the 2012 Olympic Games. We would also like to thank US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics (USSTAG) and its sponsors for their continued support. Also, thank you to our private donors. Please remember that any and all donations/contributions to our campaign should be made payable directly to either The Sailing Foundation of New York (tax deductible) memo'd Anna Tunnicliffe, or to Anna Tunnicliffe.

Sail Hard.
