Local racers competed in five divisions Saturday in Sag Harbor Yacht Club’s annual regatta, the Maycroft Cup, with Bud Rogers’ Big Boat taking the top prize.

According to the yacht club, the regatta dates back to the late 19th century. Boats raced around Shelter Island Sound and Gardiners Bay. Due to strong wind gusts, there were several blown-out sails and boats nearly capsized, but, ultimately, all crews passed the finish line.
