Twenty-one Swiss sailing clubs sailed their first ever Swiss Sailing League Youth Cup on Lago Maggiore. The host was the Locarno Yacht Club together with the Tenero National Youth Sport Center (CST). The teams sailed with a crew of five teenagers on the matched fleet of J/70s. With southerly winds of 8-12 knots, the fleet enjoyed nine races on the first day. The Bielersee YC was leading the fleet by just one point ahead of the Regattaclub Oberhofen, and third place was the Zurich Sailing Club. In excellent wind conditions, the fleet had a great set of races on the last day of the competition. With five victories and a second place, the YC Bielersee won the regatta; their team included Damian Suri, Alissia Mueller, Chantal Suri, Léo Chassot and Florian Geissbühler. Taking second was the Zurich YC team led by skipper Lukas Looser, and third place went to Regattaclub Oberhofen with helmsman Nick Zeltner. For more Swiss J/70 Sailing League information, visit
