Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships second week is underway with the Men’s RS:X, Laser, Women’s 470 and 49er fleet racing. The Star class continued its series from Sunday, and Women’s Match Racing continued with the seeding matches for semi-finals.

The event serves as the second and final U.S. Olympic Team Selection Event in the nine Olympic fleet racing events. It is also the country qualification regatta where USA will look to secure an Olympic berth in all 10 Olympic events.

Mark Mendelblatt (Miami, Fla.) and Brian Fatih (Miami, Fla.) now stand in second overall in the Star class, after scoring a 9-8 on a day plagued with gusting wind and approaching rain. They are 12 points behind leaders Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson (GBR) after four races.

In Women’s Match Racing, it was another long day on the water. Anna Tunnicliffe (Plantation, Fla.), Molly Vandemoer (Stanford, Calif.) and Debbie Capozzi (Bayport, N.Y.), sailing as 'Team Maclaren' matched against France’s Claire Leroy in a 'best-to-two-wins' and lost two straight matches. They will be the second seed in the semi-final round.

For Genny Tulloch (Sausalito, Calif.), Alice Manard Leonard (East Haven, Conn.) and Jenn Chamberlin (Washington, D.C.), they continued in the repechage round, and finished the day with six wins, six losses.

Excitement came during flight 73 when Tulloch’s 'Team GETSailing' matched against Denmark’s Lotte Medlgaard Pedersen. Tulloch was given a penalty at the beginning of the match, but lead most of the match. On the last downwind leg, Tulloch forced a penalty on Pedersen and cancelled out her penalty. They matched to the finish, but it was Tulloch’s team crossing the line for the win.
