Moss Leads J/70 Norwegian Sailing League

J/70s sailing Norway sailing league (Sandefjord, Norway)- The Moss SF upgraded their tactician Karl-Einar Jensen to helmsman for this weekend and the move paid off big-time. The team clearly managed the change of roles for Moss Sailing Association and, once again, they delivered a win- so now it is two in a row for their sailing club.

The SEIL magazine's prediction that Mossingane is the year's favorites was further strengthened by this past weekend’s performance. They managed to start off with two bullets in the first two races, and then closed with four straight bullets to win with 14 pts.  However, their primary antagonist/protagonist was KNS (Kongelig Norsk Seilforening), pushing them hard J/70 Norway Sailing League winnersall weekend long but not being able to overcome the consistent performance of Moss.  Meanwhile, they were both chased hard by Asgardstrand that also managed to win a few races, but could not overcome the high-level of consistency of the top two teams.

As a result, Moss is leading the series with a 1-1 tally for 2 pts.  Lying in second is KNS with 2-2 for 4 pts.  And, third is Brevik with a 3-4 for 7 pts.  The Norwegian sailing league now takes a break and starts again in late August.  Follow the Norwegian J/70 sailing league on Facebook here  For more Norwegian J/70 Sailing League information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
