ANNAPOLIS, MD-- Former ODU three-time sailing All-American Sally Barkow(Nashotah, WIS.ODU'02) and her crew of Debbie Capozzi (Bayport, NY-'03), Carrie Howe and Annie Lush won the US Sailing's 2003 Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship, the most prestigious women's sailing regatta.

Barkow and Capozzi, who are both on the US Sailing squad are olympic hopefuls in the Yngling Class at the 2004 games in Athens.

"It feels awesome to have won," said the 23-year old Barkow, who only started sailing keelboats one and a half years ago. "We approached the last day with confidence just like we did every other day. We learned a ton here, from communications, to boat handling to mentally focusing. It was a big step for our campaign."

Coming into the final day of racing, Barkow's team held a 20-point lead over the 66 teams in light 8-10 knot breezes, the foursome once again showed command of their boathand and the scoreboard, with finishes of 3 and eight.

The United States Sailing Association (US Sailing) is the national governing body for sailboat racing. Headquartered in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, the organization's mission is to encourage participation and promote excellence in sailing and racing in the US.
