The Yacht Club Bielersee hosted eleven women's sailing teams from all over Switzerland. The YCN RC/PRO team managed to run eight races in very light and challenging conditions, going until sunset on Saturday just to ensure that enough races could be completed.

In the end, it was the Regatta Club Bodensee's team of skipper Livia Naef and crew of Sandra Giovanoli, Danielle Rast, Giulia Corbelli, and Tessa Egli that won the first regatta of the season-long series. The well-practiced and experienced team posted an enviable record of 1-1-3-1 for 6 pts total.

Second place was determined on a tiebreaker at 8 pts apiece. Winning the countback was an up-and-coming team that shows great promise- Bordee de Tribord- La Neuveville. The BTLN team consisted of skipper Maren Kausche and crew of Ysaline Petermann, Ena Hirschi, Morgane Emery, and Chloe Fischer. They provided a good fight for the winners, counting an improving scoreline of 4-2-1-1 for 8 pts.

The bronze medal went to Club de Voile de Lausanne. Their skipper was Stephanie Hasler with a crew of Marie Novak, Melanie Henry, and Yoana Lopez. Their record was a consistent 2-1-2-3 for 8 pts.

Rounding out the top five was Segelclub Enge Zurich (skipper Mina Stanikic) in fourth place and Cercle de la Voie d'Estavayer (skipper Natacha Reynaud Oudot) in fifth place.
