Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailAnnalise Murphy - JapanAnnalise was second in the medal race in Melbourne which left her 4th overall in the event and with her wins in Brisbane and Sydney earlier in December, gave her overall victory in the ‘Down Under Series’, the combination of the 3 race weeks. She finished Melbourne on equal points with New Zealander Sara Winter who narrowly won the race from Annalise to finish third overall. After the unpredictable weather of the last few days they got a decent south-easterly wind between 12 and 15 knots for the majority of the day. Dutch sailor Marit Bouwmeester’s fourth in the medal race gave her victory over American Paige Railey who finished 9th in the medal race and lost the overall lead that she had held through the week. Annalise’s next event is Miami Olympic week in late January.
