R5 & R6 2017 // Report & results

Some footage from Sunday by Lennart Gustafsson

A great weekend of the DN Sweden R5 & R6 ranking regattas and the 2016 Swedish Class III Championship was completed yesterday on lake Mälaren in Västerås.

28 DN sailors from Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands including a couple of first timers and 9 Class III sailors had come to race on the fast black ice. 

Saturday (R5) was a beautiful day but as the forecast had predicted the wind was just a little too weak to get us going properly. A lot of chatting and some reaching but sadly no racing...

When we came down to the ice on Sunday morning for R6 the wind had finally started to blow and we ended up with a fantastic racing day in high speed conditions; 7 races for the DNs and 5 for the Class III yachts.

Congratulations to the winner D-112 Thomas Ebler and to the new Swedish Class III champion S-17 Anders Olsson.

Thank you all who came from near and far to participate in this event, hope to see you soon again!
