This weekend, the IceBreaker competition in Gothenburg, Sweden takes place. We were unfortunately not invited, due to our comparatively low ranking and bad result in the qualifier. Therefore, we had to find another competition.
On the 31st of April, we’ll travel to Helsinki, Finland and sail the Helly Hansen Cup. The competition is sailed in J/80 boats, which is new to us. Fortunately there is a practice day on Friday the 1st of May, which will maximize our understanding of the boat. We all really look forward to the regatta, and is very excited to see how we perform against the Finnish sailors!
The week after that, we’ll be back in Gothenburg and participate in Volvo Spring Cup. It is the qualifier for Stena Match Cup Sweden 2015, and the competition will be very good. The perfect way to get good routine and learn to compete against the very best.
