PORTSMOUTH, R.I. -- Eight more sailors have been selected to the 2012 U.S. Olympic team based on their performances at the ISAF world championships in Australia.

They are Rob Crane of Darien, Conn., in the Laser; Bob Willis of Chicago in windsurfing; Erik Storck of Huntington, N.Y., and Trevor Moore of Naples, Fla., in the 49er; Mark Mendelblatt and Brian Fatih of Miami in the Star; and Amanda Clark of Shelter Island, N.Y., and Sarah Lihan of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in the women's 470.

They join Paige Railey of Clearwater, Fla., in the Laser, and her brother, Zach, in the Finn; and Stuart McNay of Boston and Graham Biehl of San Diego in the men's 470.

Farrah Hall of Annapolis, Md., earned a nomination in the women's RS:X windsurfer category pending the United States earning a country spot at the RS:X world championships in Spain in March.

The women's match racing team will be determined in May.
