Hodgdon Yachts Shipyard Cup X

at Shipyard Cup X

EAST BOOTHBAY, Maine -- SCHEHERAZADE skillfully outmaneuvered the fleet Sunday to take first place honors and winner overall at Shipyard Cup X.

With great patience and flexibility, the race committee, led by PRO Peter Craig, managed to seize the moment in a very foggy Maine day to get a good start after repeated fog and light air brought on postponements.

True to the spirit of the event, the "winner overall trophy" was an engraved bucket and large bottle of Dom PĂ©rignon. The bucket was filled with champagne and passed around to the winning crew. SCHEHERAZADE's owner drew great cheers from the crowd as he took his turn.
