Rambler the 90 footer from the New York Yacht Club was the first boat to cross the finish line 14 nautical miles ahead of Donnybrook. Rambler finished MHOR with a elapsed time of 42 hours, 44mins, 32 seconds. Followed by Donnybrook who crossed the finish line with an elapsed time of 45hours, 4min, 6sec and Privateer a few hours later (49hours, 50min, 24sec).

Based on a handicapping formula that considers hull design, sail area and other factors. Privateer finished first in the IRC-1 class. Snow Line and Temptation are expected to cross the line before mid-night this evening.

In regards to Summerwind and Valour,  all we know is that they have withdrawn from the race.  But have yet to check in with a reason.
