While Saturday provided 8-11 knots from the northeast for two races, a dying northerly allowed only one race on Sunday. USA’s 2012 Olympic team of Mark Mendalblatt and Brian Faitih posted a 2-4-1 to win the event, finishing four points clear of Paul Cayard and Joshua Revkin in second with Jim Buckingham and Craig Moss four points further back in third.
