Congratulations to RSYS for winning five races and coming second overall at the NYYC Invitational in Rhode Island. They were also awarded the Resolute Trophy, pictured.
Commodore Chapman commented, 'The Squadron crew lead by Guido Belgiorno-Nettis sailed extremely well in the varied conditions that confronted them throughout the regatta. To come second in this high calibre fleet was an outstanding result, especially as it was the first time they had sailed the Swan 42.
'It was wonderful for our team to participate at this event and to rekindle the Squadron's sailing ties that go back to early America's Cup challenges.'
Skipper Guido said afterwards, 'What a cracker of an event! Two bits of silverware: second outright and the Resolute Cup. Now that's an added bonus from what was expected to be just a fun regatta!'
Well done team. Safe travels home and we look forward to hearing your stories at the Clubhouse bar.
