The toughest match racing contest in sailing history finished at Perth 2011 this afternoon. 29 Womens match racing teams from around the world competed in some 440 matches over 13 days.

Anna Tunnicliffe, the 2008 Laser Radial Gold medallist and her U.S. crew of Molly O'Bryan Vandemoer and Debbie Capozzi beat Great Britain’s defending World Match Racing Champion Lucy McGregor, her younger sister Kate and Annie Lush 4-0 in the final match of the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships at the Swan River mouth in Fremantle Harbour this afternoon.

Dockside Tunnicliffe, the 2009 and 2011 World Sailor of the Year said ‘We have accomplished our goals. We wanted to qualify the country for the London Olympics and we have done that and made the World Championship podium. Winning the World Championship is the icing on the cake and we are over the moon to have won it.

‘We have been working really well together on the boat. We have been sailing really smart and it is a wonderful reward for all the hard work that we have put in all year long.

‘We came here to this World Championship with two U.S. teams and we didn’t see Genny Tulloch and her crew on the race course at all, because we were in different sides of the draw.

‘Our U.S, trials are coming up in May and we will have a good long battle with each other then. If you go head to head enough times you will eventually find the right winner. That team will go to the Olympic Games.’

The USA’s second team Genny Tulloch, Alice Mayard and Jenn Chamberlin finished outside the world championship quarter-finals.
