MOUNT DESERT — The 22nd annual Hospice Regatta saw three days of intense racing last weekend and while only one boat could finish first in each event, everyone came away winners.

Until this year, the Hospice Regatta occupied two days, with several smaller boats and junior sailors racing on Friday and International One-Design sloops and cruising boats racing on Saturday.

This year, the Cruising Class race, sailed as one of the Northeast Harbor Fleet summer cruising boat series, was held on Sunday, with Saturday devoted solely to IODs and the Luders 16 sloops and juniors racing on Friday.

Among the big boats, it was Brooklin Boat Yard that was the big winner, with Mike Cook’s Lynnette taking both line honors and the corrected time win. The custom Eggemoggin 47 just edged out Joe Weber’s Dreadnought, a Jim Taylor-designed 49-footer. BBY built both boats.
