Little wind provided plenty of sailing challenges

It was a challenging day for sailing on Sunday as the annual Kootenay Lake Sailing Association’s Father’s Day Regatta — which was postponed a week ago — finally got underway.

Winds were extremely light and some boats had trouble finishing the opening race. But later in the afternoon, the wind came up to about 5 knots.

The second race was more exciting and the third race started strong but finished with light winds.

The overall winning boat was Orbit, with Sloop du Jour and Current Sea coming in second and third respectively.
