GP 3 and District Championship
The Star class in Sweden had another fantastic regards at Sune Carlsson's båtvarv this past weekend. We were racing for the 10th district championship and the annual Oktoberpokalen.
We had two days of cold and wind for the last regatta of the season here in the North. We had winds in between 15-20 with some gusts getting into the upper 20's. This made for some challenging racing and made sure that everyone was on their toes to look out for some large gusts and the shifts on beautiful Baggensfjärden.
Max Salminen and Johan Tillander bested everyone to take the win with 5 wins out of 6 races. Henrik Jörhov sailing with Bent Pedersen took second and the podium was completed with Jesper Stålheim and Henrik Glimstedt crewing. Max and Johan will take this event as a good reference and some more training I am sure the represent the 10th district well in the Bahamas on December for the SSL Finals. Good luck!
As always I would like to say how great the hospitality at Sune Carlsson's Båtvarv is and every event is always one to look forward to! Thank you to the entire Carlsson family for continuing to host the great Star events. This time we were fortunate enough to enjoy some beer and sausages in the spirit of Oktoberfest.
