The 2013 Atlantic Cup wrapped up this weekend with its third and final leg of racing in Narragansett Bay. Winner of legs one and two, #118 Bodacious Dream, secured first place overall. Second place was #121 Lecoq Cuisine, and #116 Icarus won this weekend’s inshore series on the Bay for third place overall.

After two weeks of tight competition that began when the fleet left Charleston, South Carolina on May 11, the teams were proud that their hard work paid off.

“We are ecstatic. We really wanted to win the racing and do well in the inshore series. Obviously Lecoq Cuisine was our closest competitor and we really wanted to best them, which we did today, so that was terrific,” said Bodacious Dream’s Dave Rearick.

Rearick and his co-skipper Matt Scharl claimed $5,500 of the $15,000 prize purse.

Throughout the two days of inshore racing on May 25-26, winds stayed in the upper teens and twenties with gusts up to 30 knots. A challenge indeed, but overall, both teams and organizers called the 2013 Atlantic Cup a success.

“We are very proud to have a terrific team with us to put together another successful event. This year exhibited extremely tight racing in both the offshore and inshore legs with final positions not decided until the final minutes,” said Hugh Piggin, the race’s director.
