HSS internal qualification for Finnish Sailing League on 15.-16.6.2019
HSS will take part on Finnish Sailing League 2019. Sailing League is a ranking serie of three regattas between finnish sailing clubs. Regattas are sailed with sporty J70 boats. The races are short Fleet-type action-packed races that last for about 10-15 minutes. Team switches between boats and RIBs and possible protests are handled immediately on the water. After the third regatta best finnish sailing club will be crowned as a champion.
The key thing in the Sailing League is that clubs compete against each other as teams. When it comes to clubs, not so much to individual sailors, it opens up new opportunities to be involved in racing sailing.
The Finnish Sailing League is one of the 17 national leagues. Top clubs of each country compete in the international Sailing Champions League. In addition, the winning clubs of national leagues around the Baltic Sea will compete in the Nord Stream Race.
Finnish Sailing League regattas are organized:
- 13.-15.9. Helsinki, BS – qualification
- 20.-22.9. Naantali, NPS – qualification
- 11.-13.10. Maarianhamina, ÅSS – finals
On season 2018 HSS finished on 18th place. ÅSS won, WSF was second and MSF third. You can find results from last year here. Season 2017 HSS did not participate, but on season 2016 we finished on 5th place and 2015 on 7th place.
Internal qualification of HSS will be sailed on 15th and 16th June as part of Spring Cup. Qualification is open for all club members. Everyone can collect own team (3-4 sailors) and participate.
