Genuine Risk First to Finish in Vineyard Race

Just one week after arriving at Kings Point from a 2500 nm trip from Lake Michigan Genuine Risk has finished first in the 2008 Vineyard Race. Genuine Risk was on pace to set a new record for the race for the first 130 nm of the 238 mile race. But fickle winds made the final leg very slow- even sitting in no wind in sight of the finish for 6 hours. The boat, crewed by midshipman, Alumni and Coaches finished the race at 2300 Saturday night, three hours ahead of the next finisher, course record holder Blue Yankee.
