Gold Cup 2016 100th Anniversary Photo Recap August 28

web cover KIM_0516The final day of watching the Gold Cup 2016 100th Anniversary was a very hot and mostly sunny day.  Boats raced continuously with no major incidents.  Lots of fans and a great time.  Here’s a few photos to share some of the excitement throughout the day…

Top 4 finishers for the Gold Cup 2016 weekend (from right to left ABOVE PHOTO) are J. Michael Kelly, Jimmy Shane, Jeff Bernard, and Brian Perkins.

There was a tornado warning for Monroe County during the afternoon, which is the south end of the Detroit River.  Luckily the bad weather stayed away.
