Expecting Some Tight Competition for its 88th Edition
The CYC Around the Island Race is shaping up to have some very tight competition for its 88th edition this year (Sept. 6). Over this past weekend, five of the 25 teams signed up (to-date) took on the Ida Lewis Distance Race, and all finished with strong results. See highlighted competitors in the following photo story:

Also, Bill Kneller’s J/109 Vento Solare and John Gowell’s Taylor 41 Temptress both took fourth-place finishes in PHRF A and B, respectively.
