Naming the Overall winner in the Optimist Fleet at Pensacola Yacht Club’s USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festival-Gulf Coast- came down to the final leg of the final race. At the end of the day there was a three-way tie between Jackson Macaulay, Gil Hackel and Truman Rogers, each with eight points.

In the three races that were completed for the regatta, Macaulay had scores of 5, 2, 1. Hackel had 1, 5, 2 and Rogers had 4, 1, 3. Since two of the three had two first places Rogers was automatically third. For Macaulay the win came in the last race by first to Hackel’s second. Principal Race Officer Hal Smith got in double yesterday’s single race before the fleet was chased ashore by another thunderstorm like Saturday

Macaulay sails out of the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron, Hackel is a local Pensacola Yacht Club boy. All of the top three train with the Lake Ontario Optimist Team (LOOT).
