On the third day of the 51st Governor’s Cup, it seemed like someone finally beat Harry Price on the waters off Newport Beach. His perfect run with his Cruising Yacht Club of Australia crew appeared over on Thursday.
It looked as though the lone all-female crew in the fleet of 12 boats took down Price, World Sailing’s No. 6-ranked skipper in open match racing.
Skipper Clare Costanzo and her crew of Jessica Angus, Emma May and Hannah Lanz led Australia’s Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club to an exciting finish, believing they defeated Cruising Yacht Club of Australia and ended Price’s 16-match winning streak in round-robin action.
There was an issue with the race.
