In the first weekend of October, Jachtclub Veere and the Royal Dutch Sailing & Rowing Association (KNZ & RV) organized the Eredivisie Sailing 2019. In total, 17 sailing club teams competed for qualification for the SAILING Champions League 2020 on the Ilsjmeer in front of the port of Muiden. In three days, 15 flights were run for 45 short races. Under challenging wind conditions, all races were sailed off the coast of Muiden. Until the last set of races, there were seven teams who claimed the podium. It was the youth team of WSV Giesbeek who finally won the title. The other tickets for the Sailing Champions League were for Almere Centraal in second, WV de Meeuwen in third and the KNZ & RV in fourth. WSV Giesbeek had a young and very talented team. Last year, they were the 2018 Dutch J/70 National Champions. For more Dutch J/70 Sailing League information, visit https://zeilen.watersporters.nl/wedstrijdzeilen/eredivisie-zeilen/.
