Relative Obscurity skippered by Peter Duncan with crew of Victor Diaz de Leon, Willem van Waay, Morgan Trubovich, have had a very successful season thus far with, 3rd place at the Pre-Worlds last week and 1st at North American Championships in May. Duncan also won the Puerto Cervo World Championships in 2017.

Midlife Crisis skippered by Bruce Golison, and his crew of Steve Hunt, Erik Shampain, Jeff Reynolds were pipped at the post with much more consistent results, however once race drops came into play they finished second overall. Bruce and his crew won the Pre-Worlds last week which saw a slightly stronger gradient throughout the week.
