The Dataw Cup Sailing Regatta last Saturday was held in light winds that forced the course to be shortened from the planned 22 mile length to 14 miles. Seventeen boats started, but due to the lack of wind only 11 finished the race. The fleet was divided into two classes based on boat ratings, and the actual race times of each boat are corrected to adjust for the differences in the various boats. Trophies were awarded in both classes with the boat with the overall best time being named the winner on the Dataw Cup.
The results of the race are: Class A: First Place: Dead On Arrival, Peter Gamble; Second Place: Yeardley II, Paul Keyserling; Third Place: Loki, Ricky Akers. Class B: First Place: True Love, Roy Crocker; Second Place: Stray Cat, Everette Ballenger; Third Place: Yankee Girl, Marc Viguera.
The Dataw Cup was won by Roy Crocker in “True Love”, a Marshall 22 catboat, who had the fastest corrected time of the fleet.
