Anna Tunnicliffe: Woooohoooo!!! Honored by US Sailing/Rolex again

I received some great news today from Rolex. They announced the 2009 winners of the US Sailing/Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year, and I am very proud to announce that I have been awarded this prestigious award for the second year running.

I’m so excited to win. It’s a fantastic feeling, and a wonderful way to end the past season and begin the new one.

I have had a great year of sailing, in Laser Radial fleet racing, Match racing and Keelboat fleet racing. My crew, Molly Vandemoer (also a finalist for this award), Debbie Capozzi, Liz Bower, and Alice Manard, all put in a lot of work last year and helped me to some outstanding finishes. I owe them a very big Thank You. I also have to thank my coaches who helped me at my regattas last year. And of course, all my sponsors.
