The Boston Yacht Club and the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron hosted the 38th Biennial Marblehead-to-Halifax Ocean Race this past week. The race started on Sunday July 7th 2019 off Marblehead, Massachusetts, and finished in about 58 to 62 hours for most yachts in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The big winner was in the ORR 2 division. Tom Mager's J/122 Gigi won in grand style, eclipsing her fleet on corrected time by over an hour! The ORR 4 division saw Eliot Merrill's J/42 Finesse take 4th while Fred Allardyce's J/40 Misty placed sixth.

The PHRF 1 Racing division saw a near sweep by J/Teams; Stu McCrea's J/120 Deviation took the silver, while Keith Amirault's J/130 Dragonfly also managed a podium finish by taking the bronze. The US Merchant Marine Academy's Ken Luczynski steered the J/111 Black Diamond YCC to a sixth in class.

The PHRF 2 Racing division also had good performances for members of the J/Tribe, with Eliot Shanabrook's J/109 Hafa Adai taking the silver and Paul Conrod's J/42 Castanea placing sixth.
