Sailing: Fox & Santiago Win Flag Pole Race

September 7, 2020

Scott Fox and Joanna Santiago sailed Get the Cat to victory to win the Warren D. Mickey Foggo 50th annual Flag Pole to Flag Pole Race.

The race saw Stephen Dickinson and Anderika Gilbert blast out of the Hamilton Harbor, with 12 other boats chasing.

Edward Cross Long Distance race champion Maxwell Curtis and his crew Stefan Furbert made a break to catch the leaders, but it was Gladwin Lambert and his crew Stefan Maybury who would battle Fox as they eventually made a challenge on Dickinson.

The battle was on at the front of the fleet, while behind Antione Wingood left his crew Fred Bulford in the boat while he jumped over to get his rudder that flew off the boat after being struck by a wave, George Hayward and his crew Mikia Brangman struggled after capsizing and eventually had to be towed in.

Fox took control of the race off Fort St. Catherine, as he and his crew entered the Town Cut Channel and were able to claim the title.
