Thirty boats were on the starting line for each race, making it the biggest fleet the Orcas Team has seen this season. Twelve light wind races were completed over the two day event; highlights for the team were a fourth place finish in gold and a sixth place finish in silver. The team travels to Port Angeles March 29 and to Lopez for Island’s Cup, April 5 and 6.
