In a hard-fought battle in the seas off Key West, Florida, it would be Sandra MacMillan’s Sandman team emerging victorious in the Final Sail tournament, held April 12-17, 2016. Sandman, captained by John Louie Dudas, released 21 sailfish in three days to win the event and pocket the $40,000 check for first place (once the optional jackpots were included, the team took home over $260,700 for the tournament). Utopia finished second with 18 sailfish releases, and 4 Aces was third in the tournament with 14 sails released. Utopia‘s strong finish put them ahead for good in the Quest for the Crest standings as well, making them the series champion team. In the Final Sail event, 36 boats released a total of 290 sailfish in three days.
