GULFPORT, Miss. — Johnny Lovell skippered Burt Benrud's upgraded Melges 32 to victory in this year's Race to the Coast.

But light air remained the theme of the day and the fleet spent the first hour just trying to get through the Highway 90 bridge. Steve Montagnet's FIDELIS II of PCYC won Class B.
