Saturday greeted us with partly cloudy skies and heavy winds, crew work was excellent and we finished the day with 10, 10, 5, 8, 8. Saturday night we had a great dinner at the LAYC and a guest speaker, John Craig, the PRO for the 2013 America’s Cup gave a presentation. Sunday was the warmest day but the wind was still strong, which entailed three races where the team finished, 10, 7, 8. Competitors included: California Maritime, Maine Maritime, USC, CSU Channel Islands, UC Irvine, College of Charleston, Coast Guard, Navy, SUNY Maritime and The University of Michigan. This is an invite only event and it was the second consecutive year the U of M team has attended. We would like to thank Fin and Deborah Bevan for their continuous hospitality on their CAL 40, Radiant and Randy Austin for his hospitality upon Paradis and his help with transportation. Thank you to the LA Yacht Club for another great year at Harbor Cup! Go Blue!
