Skandia Sail for Gold 2011 day three for Team AlphaGraphics

'Us Sailing Team AlphaGraphics at Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta 2011'    US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics

Skandia Sail for Gold 2011 has resulted in a ripping day three for US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics. With wind speeds in the upper 20s and a building sea. Team AlphaGraphics currently holds nine of the top ten positions across ten Olympic and three Paralympic classes: 2.4mR, SKUD-18, Sonar, Finn, Laser Radial, Star, Women’s 470; and both Women’s Match Racing teams saw wins in the Gold Round.

Zach Railey (Silver 2008 Olympics) began the day with a fourth in race four and followed it up with a third. Railey is in sixth overall for the time being and he credited an improved fitness level for boosting his power in the bigger breeze.



With a fourth and eighth finishes, Paige Railey (Clearwater, Fla.) continued to prove her strength in the Laser Radial fleet. She is in seventh overall.

In the Women’s 470 class, Erin Maxwell (Wilton, Conn.) and Isabelle Kinsolving Farrar (New York, N.Y,) are in ninth overall with scores today of 15-17. Amanda Clark (Shelter Island, N.Y.), 2008 Olympic representative in the Women’s 470, with new crew Sarah Lihan (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) scored a regatta-best third place in race six.

Scoring two straight match racing wins was Sally Barkow (Nashotah, Wis.), Alana O’Reilly (Charleston, S.C.) and Elizabeth Kratzig Burnham (Miami, Fla.). They defeated the Dutch and French teams. Anna Tunnicliffe (Plantation, Fla.) with her 'Team Maclaren' crew Molly Vandemoer (Stanford, Calif.) and Debbie Capozzi (Bayport, N.Y.) went one win, one loss. Racing in the Gold Round continues tomorrow.

Although the SKUD-18 class did not race today due to wind conditions, US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics sailors hold fourth and fifth places: Jen French and JP Creignou (both St.Petersburg, Fla.) and Scott Whitman (Brick, N.J.) and Julia Dorsett (Boca Raton, Fla.), past gold medalists at this event, respectively.

Clay Johnson a really long Laser day and the American competition: 'We had a really late start yesterday and had to do three races. Two races today, puffs into the 20s, big waves. It’s not the way I wanted to spend the last 24 hours, but we’re halfway through the regatta. I hope I made gold fleet and anything can happen. Brad is sailing really well and he’s not making many mistakes. He’s going to be hard to beat. Rob is sailing well too and it’s going to be the three of us ducking it out.'

Bonus audio interview, part two with U.S. Olympic Committee’s Sports Psychologist Dr. Wendy Borlabi discusses how she is helping US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics with performance enhancement, building skills and dealing with the pressure of being an Olympic-caliber athlete. Full interview here.

The racing: Scheduled for June 6-11 across 10 Olympic and three Paralympic classes, the Skandia Sail for Gold is hosting over 1,000 sailors from 62 countries.
