The curtain on the Midtown Cup is officially open. Don Wilson and his Convexity team have been crowned champions of the first event in the American summer series.

In hauntingly similar fashion to the most recent World Championship, it was a Don vs. Dan standoff in the final race that determined the result. The head-to-head heater started with Convexity and Dan Cheresh's Extreme2 in the 1, 2 position at the starting gun. To win, Extreme2 needed to put two boats between them. Spectators reached for their popcorn because this was about to be cinema. Let the tacking duel commence! Pursuit and Rated X crept forward, putting pressure on the leaders and giving Extreme2 the opportunity to win the event if they could flush Convexity behind the trio. Alas, Convexity showed their worth and sailed a flawless race. Fearless leader Don Wilson, along with his team of Taylor Canfield, Josh McCaffrey, Kinley Fowler, Ricky McGarvie, and Dan Morris won half of the weekend's races.

In perfect breeze on Narragansett Bay, Friday's five races finished with an astonishing result: The top seven teams were each exactly one point apart from each other. Upon discovering this, the M32 group chat quickly erupted with "wow, that's interesting," "epic," and "Shakespeare couldn't have written it any better." Competition couldn't be closer.
