The forecast looked really bad for the final day of racing but luckily they got it wrong. Two races were run in 7-10 knots of breeze and mild seas. Navy came out swinging winning the first race taking the third overall spot from USC. In the final race Mass Maritime had a spectacular start and got the bullet. Cal Maritime finished in front of Charleston to claim their 5th Harbor Cup in a row. A nice parting gift to Director of Sailing Charlie Arms who will retire from Cal Maritime next month. Thanks to the Port of LA for their sponsorship and to Los Angeles Yacht Club and PRO Tom Trijillo and his RC.
