The news from the women's match racing course on Day 3 of the Olympic Regatta was good for U.S. Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider. But only just. Anna Tunnicliffe, Molly Vandemoer, and Debbie Capozzi won both of their races by a combined seven seconds, or about a boatlength in sum. They beat Finland, a regular training partner, by 2 seconds, and the French team, led by former world champion Claire Leroy, by 5 seconds. One false step and the U.S. team would've found itself on the hot seat with five races remaining in the round robin.
