hand to cover the event! During the racing, three new Swedish champions where crowned and, additionally, the Junior SM regatta was settled on the waters off Saltsjöbaden near Stockholm, Sweden. In total, more than 400 sailors participated in the iconic championship and Junior SM reached a new record! Never have so many two-man-boats have competed for the SM medals! It was truly a magnificent sight to behold with all the competitors in many fleets across multiple race courses on the beautiful waters of Sweden’s Archipelago!

“It has been a fantastic regatta. Certainly some tricky wind conditions and crisp weather that belong to October, there have been fair and decisive races, just as we like the organiser want.” Good sailing and a wonderful atmosphere in the harbour as well.

“No incidents on the five racetracks where our volunteers kept order on all participants” sums up the Royal Swedish Yacht club director Stefan Rahm following the weekend.

It was windy and shady on the first JSM day for 29er, but that did not stop the 30 boats launching and testing their limits. On site, in addition to the Swedes, there were several Finnish boats offering a good level of competition. In addition to a lot of wind, Stockholm offered sun and a little warmer temperature. Today it is different, with both the lower temperature and the strength of the wind.

29er is a two-person boat where the crew keeps the balance with the mainsail from the trapeze, and the helmsman manages the jib and steering. The teamwork is incredibly important and it gets harder in changing conditions, therefore, the sailors were really tested during yesterday’s sailing.

The KSSS Olympic Class Regatta and Junior SM did not only unite Swedish sailors on the broad front, the neighbouring country of Finland also showed a strong presence with over 70 sailors in the different classes.

Hartas Productions provided the coverage for both the KSSS Olympic Class Regatta, and the JSM, which included racing from classes like the 49er, 49erFX, 29er, RS Feva, Laser standard, Laser Radial, Laser 4.7, Europe dinghy, Zoom8, OK dinghy, Finn, 505 and a range of skill levels in the Optimist fleets.
