Other winners include Deckhand Greg Russell of M/Y Vixit, Andy Linskey of Datum, Chief Engr. Scott Verrier, and Capt. Brook O’Neill of M/Y Avalon with a score of 55.

Two teams scored 58 points so a tie-breaker awarded third place to the M/Y Rock It team of Capt. Hendrik Jacobs, Engr. Jonathan Stokes, Second Officer Garreck Mathee, and Bosun Remmert DeBeer and second place to Southern Yacht Industries team of Mike, Tom, John and Gibby.

M/Y Fortunate Sun’s team won best dressed group for their Freddie Mercury and Queen costumes — First Officer Simon Boyd, Chief Stew Belinda O’Brian, Purser Valentina Jackson, and Third Stew Lara Spotts.
