We are happy to announce Olympic gold medalist and 2x ISAF World Sailor of the Year Anna Tunnicliffe as the LaserPerformance Collegiate Cup Event Ambassador.
Anna won Olympic gold in the Laser Radial in Beijing 2008 and is a two-time ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year (2009, 2011). Recently, Anna sails as tactician on Extreme 40 Team Alinghi, one of the only females on the competitive circuit. She also has extensive experience with college style sailing.
During the LPCC, Anna will coach at the development clinic, offer support to traveling teams on racing days and speak at the semi-formal dinner.
We believe Anna’s involvement will enhance the spirit of the event and help encourage young sailors as they gather to compete for the LaserPerformance Collegiate Cup.
