U.S. Ambassador William Brown beat President Chaim Herzog in a three-leg yacht race off Tel Aviv on Sunday.

The Israeli president protested the envoy’s second win, to no avail.

Herzog and Brown are both avid yachtsmen. The Irish-born Herzog told reporters he has been “hooked” on sailing since his boyhood in Dublin.
