American sailor Anna Tunnicliffe might be an Olympic champion already, but she insists Olympic sailing at Weymouth is a whole new ball game after switching disciplines.

The 28-year-old stormed to Laser Radial success at the Beijing Olympics before joining forces with Molly Andemoer and Debbie Capozzi to compete in the Women’s Match Racing.

And it certainly looks like a good choice as she is right in the mix for a medal at the 2011 Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta, winning bronze in both 2009 and 2010.

With the competition taking place at Weymouth, host of olympic sailing at the London 2012 Games, Tunnicliffe can’t help but let her mind wander to the Olympics and a change of scenery a she goes for her second gold.
