Hippo Cup and Maine Champion Series

Thomaston, Maine was the venue for the final of the 2015 Maine State Championship Series. A very tight race for the top spots resulted in an epic duel between Josh Saltmarsh and Hank Thorburn for MLC honors. Conditions were an absolute perfect 11-16 knots of wind out of the south. A small but talented and spirited group showed up to race with bluebird clear skies and temperatures in the upper 60’s. Colin Gowland won the regatta with Josh Saltmarsh second and Hank Thorburn third with just one point between them. Saltmarsh was able to finally clinch the Maine State Championship Series with this result combination and will be the man to beat in 2016! Stu Nickerson ended up in third place overall in the MLC with Tom Jamieson in fourth. Thanks to Mike Gaffney and Chris Biggart for running a spectacular final event. See you all next time!!
