Twenty yacht clubs from 13 different countries enjoyed sensational racing at the New York Yacht Club's 2013 Invitational Cup presented by Rolex. Racing came down to the last two races to determine the winner, with Larchmont Yacht Club from New York just behind the Canadian Team by 6 points. At the start, Larchmont YC managed to get over the top of Royal Canadian Yacht Club, forcing them to the unfavored right side of the course and for a time, Larchmont YC looked like they might be able to put enough boats in between them and the Canadian team to win the regatta. However, at the top mark, two yachts were penalized and Royal Canadian YC made up a few places there before capitalizing on free air to make even more gains on the run. By the bottom mark, Royal Canadian YC was ahead of Larchmont YC on the water, but light wind called off racing for the day and RCYC 's score from the previous day after race 10 kept them in the lead!
This is the second consecutive NYYC invitational cup that RCYC has won. Congratulations to Skipper Terry Mclaughlin and Crew on a well fought battle!
