20 qualified teams from MISSA converged at Chicago Yacht Club to compete for the annual Great Lakes Championship. A light ENE breeze allowed for 6 races to be completed in each division with difficult conditions, as the sea state nearly exceeded the wind state at times.
Competitors were greeted on Sunday with drastically different conditions. With wind gusting in the 30s out on the lake, the decision was made to sail inside the harbor. While this brought shelter, it also presented sailors with very shifty, gusty sailing on a condensed race course. 6 leg races were run until the time limit of 3:00 pm, allowing for 13 races total in each division.
Congratulations to our winner, Minnetonka HS who took the event with an impressive 64 point lead over second place.
