The ISAF Grade 1 2010 Rolex Osprey Cup is underway on Tampa Bay with ten teams competiting. Wtih two days for racing completed, Genny Tulloch (USA) tops the leaderboard.
Genny Tulloch (USA), ICSA's 2004 Quantum Female College Sailor of the Year, has jumped to the top of the leaderboard after the first two days of racing. With crew Alice Manard Leonard, Jenn Chamberlin, and 2006 Quantum Female College Sailor of the Year Alana O'Reilly Tulloch has been unbeaten in the matches so far.

Close on Tulloch's heels are teams helmed by Maegan Ruhlman (USA) and Giulia Conti (ITA). Ruhlman, winner of the 2010 Sundance Cup, is sailing with Sara Morgan Watters, Megan Riddle and Abby Rowlands. Conti is a three-time winner of the Rolex Osprey Cup (2005, 2008, and 2009) and is sailing with the same crew with whom she won the 2009 event: Alessandra Angelini, Lisa Lardani and Giovanna Micol. Conti and Micol are Olympians - having represented Italy at the 2008 Games in the Women's.

"I don't have many expectations this year," said Conti prior to the start of the 2010 Rolex Osprey Cup. "Since match racing became an Olympic Event, for most of the women teams it became a full-time job. My full-time job is my 470 Olympic campaign. For me and my crew it remained just fun. And it actually always has been like this! Maybe this is the key to why we have been so successful in the past few years in this regatta."

Racing for the 2010 Rolex Osprey Cup continues through Saturday 23 October. The format consists of a double round robin, followed by a knockout (first to win 3 points) semi-final and final rounds. A full list of competitors, including current standings, follows.
