Texas Navy Trophy
The last offshore race in the four-race Texas Offshore Racing Circuit (TORC) took place the weekend of September 26-27. Bee Bednar's Stinger finished first, followed by J.D. Hill's J/122 in second. Stinger managed to win all four races in the series, and as a result won the Texas Navy Trophy for the third time. The race start saw winds in the 6-8 knot range with predictions indicating that the wind would drop to the 5-knot range after sunset. This proved to be incorrect. Just after sunset, a rapidly developing storm pushed 6-8 knot winds into the 20-28 knot range with gusts of 30+.
