The 2012 U.S. Women’s Match Racing Championship was won by Genny Tulloch, the victory is the third in the event for Tulloch in four years. Tulloch and her crew were dominant this week by winning all 21 matches they raced. They put the finishing touches on this fantastic four-day event by winning 3-0 over Nicole Breault in today’s Finals.

Tulloch (San Francisco, Calif.) was challenged in today’s first race. Breault had a lead early and was in control. However, Breault lost her lead when she over shot the first mark, picked up a foul, and took extra tacks. Tulloch went on to win by a couple boat lengths.

After a compelling pre-start in race two, Tulloch approached the starting line in control by exposing Breault to bad air and forcing her deep in the box. Tulloch took a two-boat length lead off the line and never looked back. Tulloch won race two by eight boat lengths.

Breault notched another penalty on the pre-start of race three. Tulloch took a three boat length lead early and eventually won by 10 boat lengths to clinch the championship.

Tulloch sailed this week with Margaret Shea (Wilmette, Ill.) and US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider teammates Jennifer Chamberlin (Washington, D.C.) and Stephanie Roble (East Troy, Wis.). Breault’s crew consisted of Evan Brown (San Francisco, Calif.), Casey Williams (Belmont, Mass.), and Julie Servais (San Diego, Calif.).

'It feels amazing to win this championship in my home waters,' said Tulloch. 'It was really cool for us to join forces this week. Everyone did a great job and proud of this team for how they all came together.'
