Under sunny skies with winds capping at 12 knots on Sunday, Great Britain’s skipper Ian Williams outsailed Long Beach Yacht Club member Scott Dickson to win the 55th Congressional Cup in the waters off the Belmont Pier.
The victory was Williams’ fourth Congressional Cup victory and prevented Dickson from becoming the first LBYC member to win the regatta since Rod Davis’ 1981 victory.
Still, it was a great day for the locals and a large and enthusiastic crowd cheering from the pier, with new LBYC member Taylor Canfield winning third-place after beating Sweden’s Johnie Berntsson in the Petit Final.
