First After Dark Finisher is Team Seacats White

Team Seacats White navigated through the darkness to finish at 8:17:02 pm. When finishing after dark the teams rely on their on-the-water navigation to get them within the vicinity of the finish, then home in on the bright flashing marker being displayed by the race committee at the finish line.

The boats finishing at night can seem to suddenly appear since they are difficult to spot out on the dark water and the race officers sometimes need to have quick feet to keep out of the path of a beachcat surfing out of the darkness. Congrats to Team Seacats White for not running over anyone.
