A fourth boat has finished the Trans-Superior 2003 Yacht Race.

Chewbacca crossed the finish line in Duluth at 6:29 this morning.

Yesterday, Earth Voyager from Rochester, N.Y. arrived in Duluth at 5:45 a.m. Colt 45 was second at 11:58 a.m. Stripes was third at 12:53 p.m.

However, it's a handicapped race in which boats compete in performance classes.
