Rolex Osprey Cup 2005
St. Petersburg, Florida, USA

Giulia CONTI (ITA) is the new holder of the ISAF Grade 1 Rolex Osprey Cup after she triumphed over Anna TUNNICLIFFE (USA) in a tense and tight final in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA yesterday. In the petit final Claire LEROY (FRA) overcame Malin MILLBOURN (SWE) to take third place.
The day began with twelve knots from the north northeast, and in contrast to the rest of the competition the wind strengthened throughout the day, climbing to 20 knots by the final two flights.

Both of the day's matches went the distance with number one in the ISAF World Match Race Rankings and nominee for the ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year LEROY edging the decider against 2003 ISAF Women's Match Racing World Champion MILLBOURN. In the final CONTI and her team of Giovanna MICOL, Giulia MAZZOTTI and Alessandra MARENZI overcame TUNNICLIFFE 3-2 to record her first win in an ISAF Graded match racing event since 2001.
