We Won!! We won the 2011 ISAF Sailing Women's Match Racing World Championships this afternoon after defeating Team Macgregor, GBR.
The first two races came down to penalties that Team Macgregor got, either in the pre-start or on the race course. (Photo: copyright Richard Langdon/OceamImages 2011)
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. (Photo: Dana Paxton/US Sailing)
Tomorrow we have to put the boats to bed in a shipping container before we head back to the USA for the holidays.
In addition to our sponsors, we would like to thank, Rich, Nick, Liz, and Greg from Sail Sheboygan for all of their hard work with the fleet of Elliott 6m's this week. Also to Terry Kohler for his donation of the fleet for this event. And thank you Perth for a wonderful event. And to Coach Dave Dellenbaugh.
