The competition in the ten completed races was fierce. Positions changed or came very close to changing as skippers and crew encountered a variety of weather conditions. A huge Thank You to the Race Committees without whom the races would not take place. Another huge Thank You to Fleet Commander, George Kuper, who, as a hands-on Commander, made sure each race went off without a hitch and was properly staffed.
