About 150 yacht captains, crew and industry people gathered on the links on for National Marine Suppliers’ annual Yachty Nationals Invitational golf tournament on April 7. Each hole offered a different challenge and chances to win prizes, including The Triton’s Fastest Swing competition using jumbo marshmallows. A raffle at Hole 19 raised more than $5,400 for the Marine Industry Cares Foundation.

Winners of the four-man scramble, best ball competition were:
1st Place with a score of 58: Andrew Lynskey (Datum), Craig Turnbull (M/Y Allegria), Greg Russell (M/Y Vixit), and Christian Denhard (Rybovich)
2nd Place with a score of 59: Ryan Bester (M/Y Chasing Daylight), William Straus (M/Y Dream), Dudley Salt (M/Y Elysian), Phil Bidro (M/Y Chasing Daylight)
