U.S. MATCH RACING CHAMPIONSHIP

Reprinted from our friends at Scuttlebutt

The finale of US SAILING’s 2009 National Championship season takes place this week as top teams compete for the Prince of Wales Bowl at the U.S. Match Racing Championship (USMRC). St. Petersburg Yacht Club (Fla.) will host four days of racing in Sonars on Nov. 19-22 that features three multiple time winners and an Olympic Gold Medalist. Defending U.S. Match Racing Champion Dave Perry (Southport, Conn.) leads the field, also having won the title in 2006. His team will be challenged by two-time U.S. Match Racing Champion Brian Angel (El Segundo, Calif.) who won in 2007 and 2005, and David Dellenbaugh (Easton, Conn.) who won in 2002 and 1984. US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics (USSTAG) member and Olympic Gold Medalist in the Laser Radial Fleet, Anna Tunnicliffe (Plantation, Fla.), will race in her second match racing championship this month and her first U.S. Match Racing Championship. The newly crowned 2009 ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year, Tunnicliffe, finished second at US SAILING’s 2009 U.S. Women’s Match Racing Championship last weekend in St. Thomas, USVI. Women’s match racing will make its Olympic debut in 2012, and Tunnicliffe has committed to this discipline for her next Olympic campaign. As a reflection of the increasing interest for match racing in the U.S., the entire field is exceedingly deep this year. Here are the entrants: Brian Angel/ Mike Delanty/ Payson Infelise (El Segundo, CA) Taylor Canfield/ Charlie Enright/ Brett Clark (St. Thomas, VI) David Dellenbaugh/ Ralf Steitz/ Rick Dominique (Easton, CT) Bill Hardesty/ David Hughes/ David Gerber (San Diego, CA) Mark Johnson/ Denise Cornell/ Tom Gleeson (Appleton, WI) Chris Nesbitt/ Brian Janney/ Megan Kenney/ Gunnar Torre (Corona Del Mar, CA) Dave Perry/ Chris Museler/ Doug Clark (Southport, CT) Meagan Ruhlman/ Emily Pulos/ Katie Werley/ Jo Ann Fisher (Bratenahl, OH) Russ Silvestri/ Craig Healy/ Christopher Smith (San Francisco, CA) Anna Tunnicliffe/ Liz Bower/ Debbie Capozzi/ Molly O’Bryan (Plantation, FL) Complete results, daily reports, photos, Twitter updates, live race tracking by Kattack and video highlights by Sailgroove available at http://championships.ussailing.org/Adult/USMRC.htm
