The St. Petersburg Yacht Club sailed away with the PHRF Championships over the weekend, beating the Davis Island Yacht Club team by more than 30 points. Also, the Vice-Commodore's Cup and Talbot Cup were held concurrently on Saturday. Joe Nuzzo's Hot Tuna won the spinnaker division I and overall title in the Talbot Cup, and racing division I in Vice-Commodore.
"We just had a good, fun day, and we are ready for the next Boat-of-the-Year race," said Nuzzo. However, he finished a disappointing sixth Sunday for the Treasure Island PHRF team.
Lack of wind presented a problem, first delaying Saturday's start and then canceling Sunday's second race, but eight teams from local clubs turned out for the local championship race.
