The Newport Trophy

America's Cup Charter's American Eagle wins the Newport Trophy this weekend!  
The Newport Trophy was held here in Newport, RI this past weekend with 4 Divisions of 12 Meters competing.  The opening reception and captains meeting held at The Newport Harbor Hotel and Marina kicked off a weekend of racing.  Ida Lewis Yacht Club was the organizing  authority and ran a very smooth and successful regatta.   Saturday's racing was held off shore with beautiful blue skies and a breeze that fluctuated between 10-17 knots.  Sunday's racing was held north of Newport Bridge with breezes ranging from 14-20 knots, all in all great conditions for the 12's. 
The Modern Division was won by America's Cup Charters' Intrepid.  She had 4 first place finishes and 1 second place. Jack Curtan was on the helm with his veteran teammates onboard.  Good crew work, the right decisions and a great 12 Meter made it a successful weekend of sailing for the Intrepid team. In the Traditional Division American Eagle took first in all 5 races.  Owner Herb Marshall, credited American Eagles success on highly skilled crew work.  American Eagle narrowly beat out Intrepid for the Newport Trophy.... a great weekend for the America's Cup Charters stablemates!
