Cory Sertl Wins Third US SAILING Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship

Only Hollywood could have scripted a more dramatic and exciting finale as racing for US SAILING’s Rolex International Women’s Keelboat Championship (Rolex IWKC) came to its nail-biting conclusion today on Lake Ontario. 

When the 36 teams of all-women sailors – who hail from 16 U.S. states, Canada, Great Britain and The Netherlands – left Rochester Yacht Club this morning, there were eight races on the scoreboard and a very tight point spread among the top-three in the standings.  First overall was skipper Anna Tunnicliffe (Plantation, Fla.), the defending champion, followed by Sally Barkow (Nashotah, Wisc.), equal on points at 24.  Just five points back was local favorite Cory Sertl (Rochester), while Carol Cronin (Jamestown, R.I.) and JoAnn Fisher (Mt. Pleasant, S.C.), rounded out the top-five tied on 38 points.
