Two-time Olympic gold medalist and four-time Bacardi Cup winner Mark Reynolds was leading going into Sunday’s racing with third, first, and second place finishes on Saturday, but a mast break during Sunday’s race in 20-knot, gusty conditions knocked him, along with crew and local sailor Kevin Murphy, back to sixth place overall.  Mark Passmore and Brad Anderson of Western Lake Ontario finished in fourth (25 points), and John MacCausland and Matt Smith of Cooper River finished in fifth (26 points).

Bob Restrick, who sailed with Jeff Allen and tied for 10th overall, finished as the top boat with an all-LHYC team.

The event drew 23 boats to the Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club, and both days of racing featured breezy conditions on the main lake.  Full results posted below.
