Choptank Cup Race Results, October 15, 2017

Choptank Cup,

All boats finished well before the 5 PM (17:00) time limit.

Steady winds from the SSW certainly helped to make it a great day for sailing

The day improved when the overcast skies lifted to reveal a sunny day.

The start was magnificent with eight competitors sailing on a beam reach on a 12 knot wind.





Congratulations to Mark McIver and crew of Tamarind!
