Sunday offered a different set of challenges at the NWISA High School Sailing Singlehanded Championship. The sailors faced a shifty southerly breeze, creating tough to predict conditions on the water as shifts came off the shore. Despite the fickle wind, each fleet managed to complete 3 races. As the day progressed, the wind conditions became increasingly unreliable, culminating in the wind completely shutting off at 12:45pm.
