Sweden Cup-regatta no. 1 2019

Taken from Finn Sweden - Swedish Finn Class Facebook page:
Sweden Cup 1 in Träslövsläge completed.  
We thank Träslövsläge Boat Club for a well-executed regatta that we had the pleasure of sharing with the 505 class.
5 sailings in total after a Saturday with light varying winds and a Sunday that started with the flag of AP hoisted on land = waiting for wind in the wetsuit.
The Sunday finally ended with a race of about 4-5 m / s and a second in 6-7 which ended with a dimbank that was compact all over the sea. The seal in the fog meant that most of the fleet was halfway to Falkenberg before the fault was discovered.
The weekend's winner was Fredrik Tegnhed with Svante Collvin in second place and Pär Friberg on third.
