Southern Yacht Club narrowly bested host New York Yacht Club to claim third place among ten teams in the annual Hinman Masters team regatta sailed at Harbour Court in Newport, RI the weekend of August 20.
Led by skippers Johnny and Andy Lovell and Dwight LeBlanc III, the SYC team completed two round robins in second place, two wins behind New York. That was good enough for a bye into the gold knock-out series, but SYC lost to Noroton Yacht Club in the semi-finals. Click photo for more information.
