A record 189 teams competed in the 160th New York Yacht Club Annual Regatta presented by Rolex this weekend. The event is the oldest regatta in the country and was challenged by near-drifting conditions at times.

Nevertheless, the breezes cooperated better for the final day of racing and winners were named in 19 classes. Among the star-studded gathering of sailors was Australian John Bertrand sailing in Etchells class. He is best known for winning the America’s Cup here in 1983, breaking the New York Yacht Club’s hold on the trophy for 132 years.
