FBYC Race Team member Alexander Hanna won the 2013 Governor’s Cup this past Sunday at Ware River Yacht Club. Alexander was ﬁrst in the Laser Radial Fleet, which was the largest ﬂeet competing in this year’s regatta. Under the Deed of Gift for the Governor’s Cup, the winner of the ﬂeet with the most starts at the regatta wins the Governor’s Cup. This is the ﬁrst year in its 49 year history it has been awarded to a junior sailor. Alexander has competed on the FBYC Race Teams for a number of years in both Optis and Lasers. Completing the clean sweep in the Laser Radial Class, fellow FBYC Race Team members Eric Roos and Graeme Alderman took second and third, respectively.

FBYC juniors also swept the Opti White Fleet, with Latane Montague II capturing ﬁrst, followed by Will Street and Ren Moody; and Amanda Almany ﬁnished third in the Opti Red Fleet!
