The U.S. Women’s Match Racing Championship, hosted by the St. Francis Yacht Club, is set to take place from 13th-16th September on San Francisco Bay where six teams of four will be competing in J/22s for the Allegra Knapp Mertz Trophy. This US Sailing Championship is a Qualifying Event for the 2012 ISAF Nations Cup Regional Finals.

This year’s roster is highlighted by Genny Tulloch (San Francisco, Calif.), a two-time U.S. Women’s Match Racing Champion skipper. Tulloch finished just short of winning her third consecutive U.S. Women’s Match Racing Championship at least year’s event on Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans. She lost a thrilling Final match to Sally Barkow, 3-2. Tulloch will be sailing with US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider teammates Jennifer Chamberlin (Washington, D.C.) and Stephanie Roble (East Troy, Wis.), who finished fourth as a skipper at last year’s event. Margaret Shea (Wilmette, Ill.) will also be crewing for Tulloch. She was a crew for Roble last year.

Three-time Rolex Women’s Match Racing Champion Sandy Hayes (Scituate, Mass.) is in pursuit of her first U.S. Women’s Match Racing Championship. She will be joined this week by teammates, Cindy Olsen (Scituate, Mass.), Ivy Binns (San Mateo, Calif.), and Krista Paxton (Detroit, Mich.).

The race area will be set on the San Francisco City Front in the San Francisco Bay. Racing begins at 12 pm PT on Thursday and at 10 am PT on Friday through Sunday. Peggy Lidster is the Event Chair and Suzy Leech is the U.S. Women's Match Racing Event website
