It was a great weekend with 8 races completed in pretty hard and changing conditions, but the sailors liked the regatta a lot! It’s great to see new teams competing and getting experience and knowledge from the more experienced teams. All in all competition spirit was high and getting ready to the @Melges 24 Worlds 2017 in Helsinki!

Thank you, NJK Nyländska Jaktklubben, for hosting the event!
