The young man was said to elated following his winning race debut as crew. The Whitney Institute Middle School student said this was his first time competing in this race and that it feels good to finish first.

Brangman is quoted as saying: “It feels very good to win this”, after “getting a very good start”.

Comet race legend Dickinson has won this race 20 times and holds the record for the most wins.

Once again, congratulations to Dale Brangman on your maiden victory marking the 75th anniversary of the Edward Cross Long Distance Race, organised by the West End Sail Boat Club.
