WEYMOUTH, UK - Former Old Dominion University sailing standouts Anna Tunnicliffe and Debbie Capozzi guided the United States to a victory over the Netherlands in their lone race of the day on Thursday to pull the Americans into a tie for third place with two matches remaining on Saturday in round robin action.

The United States, with Tunnicliffe at skipper paired with Capozzi and Molly O'Bryan Vandemoer at crew defeated the Netherlands after trailing for the majority of the match behind splits of 0:11, 0:02 and 0:07 before overtaking the Dutch at the finish and winning by 0:03. The Netherlands was led by skipper Renee Groeneveld and crew Annemieke Bes and Marcelien Bos-de Koning.

After a break in action for all teams on Friday, the U.S. (6-3) faces Sweeden (0-9) at 9:05 a.m. (ET) and host Great Britain (5-4) at 11:10 a.m. (ET) as round robin action concludes at the Women's Elliott 6m match racing in Weymouth on Saturday.

The top eight teams from round robin action advance to the knockout stage where the crews race one another. The first crew to win three points, wins each series of races at that point to advance.
