Additional notes on the final:

Dave Villwock (U-16) said his compressor was stalling and he was worried about blowing the engine, so he returned to the dock.

Jeff Bernard (U-5) and Steve David (U-6) actually bumped on lap four when both boats hit rollers. Both drivers said it was accidental. "Jeff Bernard is a new breed; he drove his heart out," said David.

David Bryant (U-10) went dead in the water, most likely due to saltwater getting into the engine. It's happened before with that hull on the left side. Owner Kim Gregory said they'll fix that before next year's race.
