ISAF Sailing World Championships - Tunnicliffe and team take title

Anna Tunnicliffe, Molly Vandemoer, and Debbie Capozzi who together make up Team Maclaren, today took first place in Women’s Match Racing at the ISAF Sailing World Championship in Perth, Australia. Anna Tunncliffe now brings us up to date on their thrilling victory over Team Macgregor, GBR.

We Won!! We won the 2011 ISAF Sailing Women's Match Racing World Championships this afternoon after defeating Team Macgregor, GBR. We had four very good and tight races that provided great spectating for the crowds. All the races were very close, but ultimately we came out on top all four races. The first two races came down to penalties that Team Macgregor got, either in the pre-start or on the race course.

After the third start, Lucy had a couple of lengths lead that she extended on us. Up the second windward leg, we caught back up and rounded right behind her at the top mark. Downwind, as we sailed in very close quarters, we drew a penalty on her and won that race too.

The fourth race was similar, only the positions were opposite. We had the great lead off the line, which she closed up on the second lap. Downwind, going for the finish, we sailed clean of penalties. Lucy got a puff and a surge of speed as we closed the line but we just managed to squeak ahead and the race ended with us crossing the line, literally, only inches in front of her.

We are so excited to have won. This is Molly's and my first World Match Racing title, and Debbie's third. The girls did an amazing job around the course and put us in great places.
