Invitational Cup title defense proves to be a tall order

Posted on 9/14/2019

UPDATE: NEWPORT, R.I. — Team SYC wrapped up the 2019 Rolex NYYC Invitational Cup with a strong closing day, placing third in the final two races. After struggling early, Southern was able to claw back to fifth place for the regatta, just one point behind fourth place. The Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron was by far the most consistent team, posting just one double-digit finish to win the Cup. Second place San Diego YC was the early regatta leader and won the most number of races, but couldn't quite match the Aussies' consistency. Royal Cork YC and Royal Canadian YC rounded-out the top four. Click thru for results.
