After six weeks of fun racing and record numbers of participants, we again ended up with close results. In the PHRF class, we had Chad Holcomb’s Yeah Dogg in first place. In second place was Dave Steckman’s boat Juan Solo. Finishing out the podium in third place was Dean Vandament’s Wind Warrior.

In all, 59 boats over eight classifications competed in the event.
