Swedish Championship 2021

They made it! Swedish fleet organized nationals moved from March to December. It was a last hope weekend of 2021.

Day one in ultra light breeze. Gusts max to 5kt.  First race attempt cancelled because of exceeded time limit.  The other two attempts successful. I finished 17 and 9. Not what I expected but I knew what went wrong.  I put on short inserts hoping to suffer less in manouvers.  Runners were loud during sailing and that was clear indication what had to be changed.

Day two started with strong breeze with gusts up to 28-30kt. 

In the first race I was too much powered in my rig after light breeze from yesterday. Finished 5th. De-powered my mast and finished 3rd. De-powered again and finished 1st.  The next race was about left side being so much favoured that I rounded first mark in 9th place. The speed was there and I managed to recover to 4th. Last race I was far in the lead. At second upwind I sailed over something that destoyed my starbord runner’s edge and right after attempt to jibe I span like a junior sailor. What an experiance! I immediately dropped to 6th place and having good speed recovered to 3rd.  

Lake Ymsen offered great sailing venue again. Thanks Sweden.
