Twenty-eight teams participated in the 2009 Beneteau First 36.7 North American Championship last week in Detroit, MI, hosted by Bayview Yacht Club. The event was won by Port Credit, Ontario's Richard Reid and "Zingara". Photos by Meredith Block/

Last week at the Knickerbocker Cup, the winds were light but the competition was hot. Raced in Colgate 26, this match race event was won by Reuben Corbett (NZ) with Dave Perry (USA) in second, with these two teams in the photo above from Andrea Watson.
