Domino Does Not Fall

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — The first week of the Southwest Harbor Fleet’s September racing series kicked off on Saturday, Sept. 12 and, as he has done most of the summer, Ned Johnston took the victory aboard his Hurricane Katrina-surviving Luders L-16, Domino. Mr. Johnston won both of the two races held.

North, skippered by Phyllis Aschenbrenner, took second place in race one and fourth place in the second race to take away second place overall. North’s second-place finish was the tiebreaker between Ms. Ascenbrenner and Wells Bacon, sailing Mary Jane. Mr. Bacon sailed to two third-place finishes.

Diana Paine, sailing Ondine, notched a second-place finish in race two but a fifth-place finish in the first race kept her from cracking into the top three
