Rules violations resulted in penalty points. Infractions were costly!

BT stands for Broken Tiller, an award given to the team committing the most spectacular or outrageous maneuver.This year, the dubious honor was bestowed upon Mechanics Bank by our un-biased race committee observers. Our videographer was aboard when the mishap occured, so we'll see if any of the carnage was caught on tape.

Here's some helmet cam footage shot by Coach Tim Han aboard with Mechanics Bank in 2008!
