NEWPORT, R.I. — The morning may have dawned with dense fog and little breeze on Narragansett Bay, but by mid-afternoon the sky had cleared and the same could be said of any ambiguity regarding which was the best team at the 2017 Rolex New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup. In today's single race, the Southern Yacht Club was as sharp as they had been in the previous 11 races, starting strongly and never wavering.

NEWPORT, R.I. — (9/16/17, 5:30p CDT) In an extremely gratifying, if somewhat anticlimactic, starting sequence in the final Race 12, SOUTHERN held a solid leeward position as Royal Sydney YS struggled to find the front row. SYC extended to the left was able to cover RSYS from several places ahead for the entire race. Despite keeping an eye solidly in the rear view mirror, SYC posted yet another second place on a remarkably consistent scoresheet. RSYS finished in 8th place.
