The Swiss Sailing J/70 Super League started for a dozen teams on Lago Maggiore. The organizing clubs, Yacht Club Locarno (YCLO) and Friends of Sailing Brissago (FSB), selected the Yachtsport Resort Brissago as the event venue. While hoping for good weather conditions, the regatta could only manage to run seven races for each of the dozen teams all weekend long, such was the light weather all across Europe. Winning the event was Bordee de Tribord- La Neuveville (Lorenz Kausche, Laurent Forrer, Timon Kausche and Morgane Emery) with a total of 17 points. Taking second on a tie-breaker was Seglervereinigung Kreuzlingen (Tom Ruegge, Michael Hermann, Stefan Staheli and Jens Lichtblau) with 19.8 points. The loser on that countback was the bronze medal winners—Regattaclub Bodensee (Massimo Soriano, Jonathan Rutishauser, Stephan Zurfluh and Rene Ott). Rounding out the top five were past SSL Super League winners Societe Nautique de Geneve with 21 points. For more Swiss J/70 Super League information, visit
