The whole weekend of May 12-14 in Saltsjöbaden, KSSS (Royal Swedish Yacht Club) offered perfect conditions with brilliant sunshine and changing shifty winds. Everything flowed perfectly and the planned 15 rounds of racing were completed without any stress.

At the end of the 15 qualifying races, Strängnäs Sailing Club succeeded best and they led before the finale with a four points lead ahead of the Åmålsviken and Hjuvik sailing club teams.

In the finale of four races for the top four teams, there are double points for each race. So, that dynamic can make teams a little more nervous as the standings can change rapidly from race to race! Hjuvik match-raced Strängnäs at the start and that led to Strängnäs getting a false start. They had to turn back and then failed to get back on top. Hjuvik came second in the final sailing and thus took the overall victory. Second overall was Strängnäs and third was Åmålsviken. The next Swedish J/70 Sailing League competition takes place on June 2-4 in Långedrag at GKSS.
