Cape Henry Cup
Skipper Donna DeSteph brought her Irwin 38, RESTLESS in first in the PHRF Non-Spin fleet, almost 16 minutes ahead of the second place finisher.
The universal prediction of light air convinced race officials to send the fleet on the 18+ nautical mile course. The weather was fine and, to top off a great day, racers were favored with a building breeze that brought whitecaps in the afternoon. All twenty-one (21) of the 22 boats that started finished between 2pm and 4pm. For full results click here.
