SAYVILLE - A Sayville woman is setting sail for London to compete in her second Olympic Games, and this time, she's hoping to take home the gold. Four years ago, 31-year-old Debbie Capozzi's sailing team finished seventh in the Beijing Olympics. She says the games were a great learning experience and she hopes the second time is the charm. Capozzi will be competing against 400 of the best sailors in the world. She says she's confident because of her team's grueling workout routine.
