August Series for the Taormina Cup

Saturday saw the series finale for the Taormina Cup. It was a bright, clear day with an oscillating breeze. Freyja led the way from coast to coast in the day’s single race.

“The incredible tightness of final scores is pretty darn amazing,” Fleet Director Fran Charles said. “Congrats to the Gambler crew who really fought back from deep in the barrel to claim their victory.”

The top five finishers in the series finished within five points of each other: Gambler finished with a series score of 41, followed by Silver Spray with 41, Auriga with 42, Live Yankee with 44 and Caribou with 46.
