Over the weekend of September 13-15, Swiss J/70 Sailing Challenge League teams traveled to Lake Thun in the town of Spiez. The dozen teams who participated enjoyed light to medium lake breezes all weekend. With light winds in the morning, the fleet sat onshore until the thermal picked up to 4 knots before heading out for more rounds of 15-20 minute short-course racing. The regatta PRO managed to run 13 races. Over the three days, the three podium spots weren’t decided until the final race. Fighting hard for those spots were four clubs: Cercle de la Voile Vevey la Tour, Seglervereinigung Thalwil, Yacht Club Spiez (the hosts) and Zurcher Yacht Club. After learning the ropes, YC Spiez raced up the standings after being mid-fleet for the first two days, scoring four bullets in a row to end up third on a tie-breaker with Zurcher YC. Winning the regatta was CVVT with just 26 points, scoring virtually all podium finishes. Second was SVT with 30 points.
