After the final day's racing was cancelled at Charleston, South Carolina, Porter with tactician Andy Burdick, his son R.J. Porter and fellow 2013 World Champion crew member Matt Woodworth, was US Champion again.

In second overall, was John Brown's Blind Squirrel (USA-547), which is quite a stellar achievement as he has been in the fleet for less than two years. Completing the overall podium was Kevin Welch's Mikey (USA-838).

Corinthian winners were KC Shannon on Shaka (USA-801) sailing with Mike Miller, Doug Nickel and Tom Sawchuck sailed as crew.

Brent McKenzie's Ex-Kahn (USA-575), who led the fleet on Friday finished the event in second place, followed by Britain's Stuart Simpson on Team Barbarians (GBR-691) in third.
