"The Lady Liberty Cup Regatta was a resounding success! Great competition on the water and fantastic camaraderie off the water! When sixty-five women sailors get together, good things happen," according to the winner Katie Morgan from the host Manhattan Yacht Club. Her crew consisted of Linda Kaiser, Andrea Sengara, Deiane Abajos, Tricia Lynch, and Lainey Battiston.

The regatta opened on Thursday with practice racing and kick-off party on the Manhattan YC lawn. Then, the women were treated to an Ernst & Young LLP sponsored competitor dinner on Saturday evening on MYC's flagship, the sailing superyacht ARABELLA! It was a sunset cruise and dinner aboard the ARABELLA on a simply spectacular evening, sunset and all.

In the end, Katie Morgan's team sailed an excellent regatta to take the overall win, much to their ecstatic delight! Second was a familiar name in the world of J/24 sailing, Erica Beck Spencer and Jess Harris and their SEA BAGS WOMEN'S SAILING TEAM (Karen Renzulli Fallon, Hillary Noble, Kim Calnan, Barbara Gold from Portland YC- Portland, ME). Rounding out the podium in third place was Natalie Harden's team from Austin YC (Rachel Loziuk, Molly MacMillan White, Sally Lloyd, Chandler Self, and Eliza Price).
