The winner of the 2012 BassAckwards Sailing Race—held July 28 out of the Kingman Yacht Center in Bourne, Massachusetts—was Team Hardtack, which finished the course from Red Brook Harbor, around Cleveland Ledge Light and back in 2 hours, 25 minutes. The race uses a “pursuit” format, to accommodate many different makes and sizes of sailboats.

“BassAckwards XV was a huge success,” said KYC owner and president Scott Zeien. “Thirty-three sailboats raced and 19 powerboats participated in the first BassAckwards Poker Run. Everyone partied heartily, competed bravely, and finished without loss of life, limb or dignity. A lot of fun, and we raised $3,000 for the Buzzards Bay Coalition.”
