The Urnersee lived up to its reputation as a windy sailing area, providing the best sailing for the Swiss J/70 Sailing League season so far with up to 20 knot winds over the weekend of racing for the 18 teams in attendance. The Société Nautique de Genève team (skipper Nicolas Anklin, with crew of Bryan Mettraux, Mathieu Fischer and Alexis Mégevand) dominated this second round of the National Sailing League. The Geneva team won six of their nine races. The duel for second place was won by the Regattaclub Oberhofen team (skipper Stefan Seger and crew of Simon Brügger, Elianne Böni and Jürg Aeschlimann) with a runaway victory in their last race, enabling them to beat the third place team of YC Bielersee. As winners of this event, the SN Geneve team also take over the lead for the overall Swiss J/70 Sailing League series in a tie-breaker at 31 points each. Now sitting in second overall on the tie-breaker countback is Bordée de Tribord – La Neuveville, with Regattaclub Bodensee in third with 35 points.
