Stamford YC hosted their popular Overnight Race last weekend on the waters of Long Island Sound for a fleet of PHRF offshore teams. It's fun, fast overnight race and is often used by teams as a "warm-up" and training session prior to this weekend's famous Labor Day Stamford Vineyard Race. For the first time, the event featured a large PHRF Doublehanded class.

In the "big boat" PHRF A Division, Bill and Jackie Baxter's J/111 Fireball took the silver in their class. Then, in the PHRF C Division of nine-boats, Greg Imbruce's J/109 Joyride took the silver. In fourth was Dan Corcoran's J/109 Strider, fifth was Cao Deambrosio & Chris Nicholls's J/109 Rhiannon III, seventh was Jim Well & EJ Haskell's J/92 Vixen, and ninth was Chris Hynes's Navis Bona.

In the PHRF D Doublehanded Division, Arthur Hanlon's J/112E Dauntless managed a fifth place, followed by Barry Purcell's J/27 Lucida.
