Sail magazine announced that Grant Dumas of St. Petersburg, Fla., and his crew on Warrior, a Tripp 38ML, are the winners of Sail's 2012 Best Around the Buoys contest.

They will race on BeneRound, a new Beneteau Oceanis 37, at Sperry Top-Sider Charleston Race Week April 19-22 in South Carolina.

Now in its second year, Sail's Best Around the Buoys program is a grassroots racing initiative that rewards sailors for their team’s performance locally and encourages them to set a goal of racing on the national level. This will be the first time Sail enters a Best Around the Buoys team in Sperry Top-Sider Charleston Race Week.

“Grant Dumas and team represent what we are looking for in a BAB crew — top PHRF racing results, commitment as a team and commitment to their local racing scene,” Sail publisher Josh Adams said in a statement. “Now they can test their skills at Sperry Top-Sider Charleston Race Week.”

Sail and Soundings Trade Only magazines are both owned by Active Interest Media.
