The 2021 Trans Superior International Yacht Race wrapped up on Monday night, and a familiar face was the first to cross the finish line.

Based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, the crew of the sailing vessel, Stripes were the first to cross the finish.

This is a hat trick for them, since Bill Martin and his crew were also first to finish in 2005 and 2011.

"It feels great. We’ve done this race for I think over 30 years, and to come out first is great. Great teamwork, great crew, and that’s what it always takes, and a little bit of luck of course. Good competitors out there, so hats off to them as well," said Martin.

Teams compete for the Barthel Trophy, and it’s awarded to the fastest corrected time overall.

The race goes from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, to Duluth, and takes place every two years.
