Yacht crew take to the links

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)
3rd Place with a score of 61: Robert Weinkle, Lyle Schamel, Derek Rolls and Peter Flack (all of M/Y Gene Machine)
