Leukemia Cup - Newport, RI

New York Yacht Club | Newport, RI | Jun 08, 2013 | SRM VII (Swan 601)


In Class

(out of 7)

2nd in Class among the Swan 42s (Class 2). After rounding 3rd at the weather mark, SRM led for much of the race. SRM and "Apparition" were in a neck and neck battle for over half the race. The last leg was a reach, and Apparition had an A3, while SRM has no reaching sails. Still, a small opportunity for SRM to win presented itself just a few hundred yards from the finish when the wind shifted over 90 degrees as a sea breeze filled in. Boats scrambled to get their kites down and jibs up. Apparition managed to hang on and win.
