Ferguson tops in Newport Regatta

Jamestown sailor Scott Ferguson was named the outstanding performer in the 22nd annual Newport Regatta held last weekend in Rhode Island Sound.

The event drew some 243 boats in 18 classes.

Ferguson, 45, in the single-handed class, entered nine races and did not come in any lower than third place in any one of them.

He was back in the area for the weekend from Valencia, Spain, where he is the mast designer for Luna Rossa Challenge, an Italian syndicate racing in the 2007 America's Cup.
