WMR14 D1 HPLIVE Results and Standings

OYSTER BAY, N.Y. (July 11, 2014) – Racing commenced Friday morning for the teams competing  at the U.S. Women’s Match Racing Championship, hosted by Oakcliff Sailing. Eight teams of six are racing in the Match 40 through Sunday for the right hold the Allegra Knapp Mertz Trophy.

Wind speeds ranged from 5 to 8 knots for most of the day. By 3pm EDT, the wind completely disappeared prior to the completion of Round Robin 1. Racing took place on West Oyster Bay Harbor. Teams raced under clear skies, flat seas, and a slight right wind shift for most of the day.

The plan for Saturday is to finish Round Robin 1 and complete another Round Robin stage to determine places 5-8. The top four teams advance to the Semifinal knock-out series.

As expected, Stephanie Roble’s (East Troy, Wis.) team is off to a terrific start. They are the only undefeated team through five races. Roble is the third ranked women’s match racer in the world and #1 in the U.S.

“It’s real quality competition out here this week,” said skipper Stephanie Roble. “It’s the strongest field since the 2012 championship. There have been a lot of lead changes and everyone is really competent with these large boats.”

Stage 1: Round Robin 1 (not complete)
1 – Roble: 5-0
2 – Breault: 4-1
3 – Hayes: 3-1
4 – Gill: 2-3
4 – Hearst: 2-3
6 – Gallo: 1-3
7 – Barbuto: 1-4
7 – Maxim: 1-4

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
