    ONE LAP PENALTY - JUMPED THE GUN
Greg Hopp in the U-100 hit the start first and held the lead through the first lap, keeping J. Michael Kelly in the U-7 right on his hip. But wait... Hopp jumped the gun, costing him a one-lap penalty and any chance at a win. Kelly was the beneficiary and went on to get the win. Brian Perkins in the U-48 moved up to second and Muscatel in the U-25 took third.

Rod Bourke grabbed lane one and took a lead at the start. Into the turn, Rod Bourke moved ahead with Kayleigh still back in third.

Kayleigh moved into second by the end of lap 2 and started gaining ground. At the end of lap two, Kayleigh had taken over the lead but it was deck-to-deck with Bourke in the UL-11. As the boats came around the final turn, they came up on Chris Grant in the UL-3 and had to navigate their way past. Kayleigh tightened down a bit on Bourke and ran to the finish line with the win.
