The first 10 sailboats in the San Diego-to-Manzanillo race broke the record in what some observers were calling the fastest Mexican race ever--and certainly one of the tightest finishes. Hal Ward's 67-foot Cheval was first to finish at 8:54 Thursday night, followed only 4 minutes 6 seconds later by Ed McDowell's 68-foot Grand Illusion, a Bill Lee design that nudged Cheval for first place on corrected time.

The sloop Cheval finished in record time to claim line honors in the 1,100-mile San Diego to Manzanillo, Mexico, yacht race, the San Diego Yacht Club said today. H. J. Ward of the California Yacht Club in Long Beach steered Cheval over the finish line off Mexico at 8:55 p.m. Thursday. The elapsed time of 5 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes and 43 seconds trimmed more than 16 hours off the elapsed-time record set by Sorcery in 1986. Grand Illusion of the King Harbor Yacht Club finished second at 9:05 p.
