Randy Chitwood's Catalina 30 Charisma won the four-boat cruising division that sailed a 24-mile course. The threeboat Melges 24s sailed an inshore buoy series, completing four of the six races scheduled. Our J/124 Pleiades was the Division 1 runner-up after we reached the finish line around 5 p.m. in a near-calm, bright sunshine and warm air again.

Lipton Cup The PICYA's Daphne Owen checked in with a report from a reworked Lipton Cup: "We had fourteen boats total — two J/105s sailing for the Sir Thomas J. Lipton Perpetual Trophy, four Islander 36s sailing for the Larry Knight Perpetual, three Express 27s sailing for the Sir Thomas Lipton Challenge, and five Olson 25s sailing for the Admiral's Cup — which was better than expected," Owen said.

THE BOX SCORES We would like to keep a running tab on beer can results through the summer — and we need your help. We don't have the time or manpower to chase down results. You have to either post them on a website or send them directly to the race editor at rob@latitude38.com. Our format, lo these many years, is to include the name of the boat, the type and length of boat, and the first and last names of the owner(s). The following are the only results that were posted online for July. Don't forget the Latitude 38 Beer Can Challenge: sail every night at a different beer can race in any given week, then send us photo documentation, and we'll send you some swag to commemorate your pursuit of sailing satisfaction.
