MIAMA, Fla. - Three former Lady Monarch sailing greats, Anna Tunnicliffe, Debbie Capozzi and Sally Barkow, competed in the 2011 Rolex Miami OCR Women's Match Racing Regatta that ended on January 29.

Tunnicliffe ('05) skippered a crew that included fellow 2008 Olympian Capozzi ('02) and Molly O'Bryan Vandermoer. The trio finished second overall in the 24-boat field.

Barkow ('02) skippered her crew, Elizabeth Kratzig-Burnham and Alana O'Reilly, to the bronze, finishing just one spot behind Tunnicliffe.

In the semifinal's Tunnicliffe guided her boat to an easy 3-0 win over Great Britain's Lucy Macgregor. Barkow was defeated in the semifinals by the same score against Claire Leroy from France.

Leroy, along with crew Elodie Bertrand and Marie Riou, eventually ended up winning the regatta by topping Tunnicliffe, 3-1, in the final.
