Although 162 boats started the 26th St. Mary's College of Maryland (SMCM) Governor's Cup Yacht Race in Annapolis on July 30, light winds caused all but 32 competitors to withdraw. This is the largest overnight race on the Chesapeake Bay.
First-to-finish honors went to Donnybrook, owned by Jim Muldoon, of Washington, D.C. The Custom 73 crossed the finish line at St. Mary's College at 6:11 a.m.
The Joseph Waldschmitt Trophy for Best in Fleet has been awarded to Jason Bell of California captain of Rhumb Punch.
The Steve Bickell Memorial Trophy for most improved skipper or boat has been awarded to T. Richardson, captain of Jazz, of Queenstown.
