A long wait for a last chance to qualify

Day 3 Onsite Qualifying – It was cloudy, cool, and breezy for the final day of racing in the qualifying series. The day started with light winds and an onshore postponement. Sailors were sent off the beach at 1:45 PM in 5 knots but the wind was in another rapidly building cycle and quickly increased to 12 knots. Two more races were completed in 12-14 knots of wind with a much calmer sea state, providing another great day of sailing.
