Exercise– for Body and Spirit

Olympic Sailing competition is exciting– U.S. sailing winning trio Anna Tunnicliffe, Debbie Capozzi, Molly Vandemoer trained hard for their excellent results! Anna Tunnicliffe, top contender in the 2008 Laser class, brought her team to win the Silver medal at the 2012 women’s match on July 30th.  They advanced to the finals by defeating fellow American’s Team Barkow 3-0, but went on to lose a tight series to overall Champions Team Audi Match Race, (FIN).

Finn class Sailor Dan Slater of New Zealand competes near Weymouth Picture: EPA.  Hold on!  My husband Gerry and I enjoy sailing off Newport Harbor, California but no longer race.  We admire the tough skippers and crew who do!  Sailing is unbelievable exercise with all the squatting movement which requires great agility.
