Perhaps establishing primal supremacy over those other Swedish teams, ROCAD RACING won this year's J/80 Sandhamn event. It was good conditions with sunshine and winds between 2-6 m/s all day. The first day offered three races and team HAPPY led after the first day, closely followed by A2 and the aforementioned ROCAD. Saturday was team ROCAD RACING's day, they nailed all four races, winning them decisively and led the fleet. During one of the races on Saturday, the field of teams was further mixed up when several large container ships sailed through the race course!
On Sunday it was only one race and it looked like ROCAD RACING had the event won by a significant margin. The real fight was for the balance of the podium for second and third. A2 and HAPPY were only separated by one point. Like an Olympic Sailing Finals Medal Race, HAPPY managed to keep the nerves under control and nailed the final race, closely followed by Rocad Racing and A2, and thus took silver. A2 finished 3rd after a very consistent sailing in the top all weekend followed by Team Heavy Duty fourth.
