The Orcas High School Sailing Team has been very busy traveling to regattas this spring! Fifteen sailors traveled to the Annual Islands Cup Regatta April 8 and 9 at Oak Harbor. Blustery southeast winds made for an exciting two days of competitive racing. With time running out Sunday afternoon, five teams were only separated by a few points; the last race which was number 22 for the regatta would decide the winner. The Orcas team sailed very well but finished 1 point out of first and placed 3rd overall for the regatta in the gold fleet (http://scores.hssailing.org/s17/island-cup/). The Orcas silver teams sailed very well also grabbing 2nd and 5th in the silver fleet (http://scores.hssailing.org/s17/island-cup/).

April 22, the team traveled to Fairhaven in Bellingham for a long day of 3 on 3 team racing on Bellingham Bay. The team sailed great and won the regional regatta 10-1 (https://goo.gl/o1Mexr).
