The waters off Newport Rhode Island played host to the 1st Annual SNAME Regatta on Saturday, October 24, 2009. By the thinnest of possible margins, members of team STX Canada Maritime are the first to have their names engraved on the pewter cup.
Ken Lane, Chair of the SNAME Regatta Committee, was happy to recognize the winners. “Congratulations to Team STX Canada Marine and its captain, Dan McGreer, for winning the first SNAME Cup!” Lane continued, “It is more than fitting that a team representing one of our seven sponsor companies took first place. They overcame the elements and fierce competition to win by the narrowest of margins. Tied on points with the unsponsored team led by Bob McGrath, team STX Canada Marine won top honors by taking first place in two of the five individual races.”
