SAN DIEGO — Sam Gilmour was able to best Nevin Snow of San Diego Yacht Club in the fifth race of the Governor’s Cup Finals, July 20 at Balboa Yacht Club. Gilmour of Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club of Australia, and Snow of San Diego YC each won two races in hotly contested tackling duels despite the light wind and changing conditions.
In the final race, Gilmour was able to be about 7 seconds ahead at the first mark, and prevailed in their tacking duel. The two top skippers have been competing against each other in a variety of events. Both raced in the Gov. Cup in 2012 when Snow placed 4th and Gilmour 5th. Both have won Gov. Cups – Snow in 2011 and Gilmour just last year.
