NEW YORK YACHT CLUB
If the previous days of sailing were any indication, all the skippers in this week's U.S. Qualifying Series knew today was going to be the toughest day. With a perfect 12- 17-knot sea breeze, the top seeded Gold fleet teams faltered from near capsizes to breakdowns and penalties allowing hope for the lurking pack close behind. In the end, the last qualifier for the Gold fleet, Larchmont, climbed to the top as Seattle and San Francisco yacht clubs held on to gain the final two spots and berths in the 2013 Invitational Cup presented by Rolex.
