Lakewood Yacht Club members Chris and Karen Lewis, who have been competing on the East Coast this summer with their 44’ J-44 Kenai, won their IRC Class and took the overall IRC victory to win the Vineyard Light Ship trophy over Labor Day weekend.

Viewed by many as the most challenging offshore race, with segments in Long Island Sound and the open Atlantic, as well as two crossings of tidal races that mark the boundaries between sound and ocean.
