2014 Atlantic Cup: MacFarlane first to Newport

New York City to Newport Race Start!
In a dramatic turnaround from Leg One of the 2014 Atlantic Cup where Jeffrey MacFarlane finished last, he won the Second Leg from New York City to Newport, crossing the finish line on Sunday afternoon. The #116 boat navigated Block Island the best and never looked back on the way to shattering the course record by six hours and claim the second stretch race. Finishing in second place by just one minute and twenty-seconds is #54 Dragon Ocean Racing and third place goes to  Gryphon Solo II, the boat that was first to NYC. Pleiad finishes in fourth on Leg Two and Flatline took fifth. Flatline did not race in Leg one as schedules, since they were unable to reach Charleston in time for the 2014 race start. The boats will now compete for the overall title during the final day races held in Newport.
