2016 Henry T. Reath Trophy

The boats raced from Southwest Harbor down the full length of Somes Sound, then to the T-mark and the H-mark and crossed the finish line in Gilpatrick Cove. Ned Johnston came in first overall, non-spinnaker, in Domino. “He held the lead all the way around and didn’t break anything either,” Fran Charles said.

Joe Keif and the crew on Far Out took second place, and first spinnaker, honors. Ken Weg skippered Ranger into third place and took First Senior Sailor honors. Sean Beaulieu and crew brought the first IOD across the line, finishing fourth overall and earning First Youth honors in Aurora.
