Thirty-nine teams and 180 high school sailors from around the Northwest participated in the 2017 NWISA Doublehanded Championships on Orcas Island April 29 and 30. Sixteen races we competed in the varsity fleet over the two days. The wind and weather were a mixed bag over the course of the two-day regatta. Pouring rain and cold light winds on Saturday made for a very long day on the water for the sailors. Sunday, the sun came out and the breeze filled in after lunch giving the sailors some good racing conditions.
The Charles Wright Academy beat out Orcas for the regatta win with Bainbridge Island placing third overall in the regatta.
In the 20 boats, junior varsity fleet Orcas teams placed 5th and 18th for the regatta. Up next on the spring schedule the team travels to Sail Sandpoint for team race championship on May 5 and 6.
