Skipper Rick Hanson and his crew aboard the J/109 Rosalita weathered a nasty storm on approach to Block Island and strong winds exceeding 20 knots to captured the PHRF 2 class in the Annapolis to Newport Race. Rosalita crossed the finish line off Fort Adams almost three hours later than Shinnecock, but was owed a handicap of 21 seconds per mile by the J/120. Laurent Givry sailed Jeroboam to victory in PHRF 1 class. Orion, owned by Annapolis Yacht Club's Paul Milo, won IRC 2 class. Black Pearl, a Carkeek 47 skippered by Stefan Jentzsch of London, took top honors in IRC 1 and was also overall winner within IRC, which had 15 entries. Black Pearl finished second overall behind the Volvo 70 Warrior and earned a corrected time of 2 days, 18 hours, 45 minutes, 32 seconds. Nanuq, a Sabre 426 owned by Glenn Doncaster, was winner of PHRF 3 — one of the largest classes in the race with 14 boats.
