In year regatta's Sportboat fleet, however, things fell into place as expected given the conditions, with the lighter winds favoring the Vipers. Chris and Dawn Shaughnessy, with Viper designer Brian Bennett standing in at the helm, showed great poise in the conditions, winning the opener by a large margin, finishing second to Scott in the second, and then finishing third in the final race, despite a horrendously late start. That third race was won by Walter Florio's K6. Keeping close tabs on the top-two Viper teams, however, was Kaitlin Storck's Laser SB3, Team MacLaren, which finished third overall, tied with Scott. Storck had finishes of 2-4-2, and had the breeze built into the moderate range, this serious could have turned out all together different.
