ROUGAROU wins fifth GYA Friedrichs Trophy 
GULFPORT, Miss. — Burt Benrud's Melges 32, ROUGAROU, has represented SYC in the last ten GYA Challenge Cups.

Unfortunately, New Orleans YC fielded a strong team and was able to end SYC's ten-year winning streak of overall Challenge Cup victories. Click image for results.

"NEW"-GAROU wins light air affair 
GULFPORT, Miss. — Johnny Lovell skippered Burt Benrud's upgraded Melges 32 to victory in this year's Race to the Coast. A light forecast prompted the RC to delay the start and move it down the course to the entrance of The Rigolets. 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.
