The first day of the 2015 MISSA Great Lakes Championship was a trying day for sailors and race committee. The wind was 15-20 knots out of the south. With the direction of the breeze, the chop built and bounced off the break walls creating a challenging sea state. The Race Committee did an excellent job running 16 races, 8 in A division and 8 in B division.
The sun came out and the breeze shifted to the southwest. While the sea state calmed down, the wind became much more erratic due to it coming off the land. Sailors could watch boats to leeward get lifts and puffs that they themselves would not receive. The conditions rewarded patience and consistency. Congrats to Wayzata for coming away with the win, with Mounds Park Academy in 2nd, and Saint Ignatius in 3rd. A big thanks to Chicago Yacht Club for hosting with great race management.
