Team Seven Sails to Second Place at Yngling European Championship in Blanes, Spain

Portsmouth, R.I. (April 5, 2008) After a week of extremely tight racing at the Yngling European Championship in Blanes, Spain, US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics members Sally Barkow, Carrie Howe, and Debbie Capozzi stole the medal race by a nose and finished in second place overall. Having led on the first day of racing, Team Seven fell after a bad race on day two, but kept chipping away in the close fleet where every point counted. They were just one point out of first place at this year’s Yngling European Championship, and despite this close loss they seemed thrilled with the medal race results. In a team email, they gave a play-by-play of the medal race, which boiled down to a surfing contest on the last leg to the downwind finish. With five boats abreast all vying for the win, Team Seven’s Debbie Capozzi called for a late gybe, which edged them about one foot in front of Sarah Ayton of Great Britain. Ayton and her team went on to win the regatta.
