It was a dramatic end to the 2011 Audi Melges 20 Gold Cup Championship, hosted by Coconut Grove Sailing Club with Alessandro Rombelli's STIG, tactician Jonathan McKee and crew member Giorgio Tortarolo coming from behind to win the event.
"It was a classic last race," said McKee. "The deciding point was at that last top mark. When we rounded, literally, we were right on their stern. We knew that was the whole regatta. It was all about who was going to beat who. And, with the conditions like they were, it was all about how you approached the finish line. At this event, that counted for a lot of points and position."
