Game, Set, Anna





Anna Tunnicliffe is a bit of an odd duck, and not just because she married Brad Funk- who, by all rights, is an alien. With a strange part-British, part-Midwest accent adding some mystery and a little allure to perhaps the most accomplished female sailor of her generation, it’s easy to find her a bit intimidating and tough to read. But give her and her victorious crew a pitcher of hummers to drink out of their Detroit Cup after a hard fought victory in an important Grade 2 Open event, and things change. And sit her down for an On-The-Water Innerview about Laser sailing, match racing, and women in racing and she comes alive. Enjoy this one, and be sure to check here on Thursday for a full report from the D-Cup including some great video of the girls celebrating and extreme close-up race video from aboard the umpire boat.
