This past weekend the Atlantic Cup capped off a pair of tough doublehanded offshore legs with two days of fully-crewed bare-knuckled inshore racing off Portland, Maine.

Taking the overall win was the Franco-Italian duo of Catherine Pourre (the first woman to win the Atlantic Cup) and Pietro Lucian aboard Eärendil, following a pair of impressive wins in both offshore legs: the first from Charleston, South Carolina to New York City; the second from NYC to Portland.

Taking second was Mike Dreese and Tristan Mouligné aboard Boston-based Toothface II, with Micah Davis and Rob Windsor aboard the Portland-based Amhas taking third.
