Congrats to Jim Praley and his crew for winning the Mariner trophy for their combined performance (in the PHRF class) in the Annapolis to Newport Race and the Biennial Marblehead-to-Halifax Ocean Race!
From the Annapolis Yacht Club blog:
Jim Praley and his crew on Shinnecock returned to Annapolis for a short break after taking 2nd place in the Annapolis to Newport Race in PHRF 1 and the J/120 Sub Class. Less than a month later, the team headed back to New England to compete in the 36th Biennial Marblehead-to-Halifax Ocean Race in the PHRF 2 Class and finished with a corrected time of 67:57:56. Based on their combined performance in both races, they were awarded the Chelsea Clock Mariner Trophy for PHRF Racing Overall. In addition to brother Michael, Praley's crew was 100% AYC with son James "Jimmy" Praley III, Cam Bowdren, David Chinea, Tarrant Lomax, and Tom Schubert.We're glad we could be a part of this tradition and wish Praley and all the other participants the best of luck in their future endeavors!
