J/80 Grevelingencup Winter Series Report

J/80s sailing Grevelingencup in Netherlands
(The Netherlands)- “With 5-10 knots of wind, eight boats on the line and an autumn sun, it was a wonderful opening of the Grevelingencup Winter series,” reported Laura Vroon.

“With the new BABY J joining the fleet in the hands of P Kersten and the returning fleet that are familiar with our hectic fleet, it remains a beautiful field. Focus was necessary in order to capitalize on the subtle shifts. A nice quiet start of a promising winter. Promising, because we have divided this winter into the north and south fleet. There have never been so many days of racing in a J/80 sailing regatta series in the winter. In addition, there were never so many entries, twenty in total! So, it's started! On to the next, in this case the Frostbite Regatta on November 8 on the Gooimeer,” continued Laura.

After the first weekend, Peter Paul de Vries LED2LEASE is leading with a 2-1-1 scoreline for 4 pts net.  Second is Ms Vroon’s team on the famous JOIE DE VIVRE with a 1-3-3 tally for 7 pts.  Third is David van Veen’s nJOY with a 5-2-2.  Fourth is Chris Savoye’s MENTAQUILIBRIUM sitting on a 3-4-4 for 11 pts and in fifth is Edwin Spaans’ J-STRING with a 4-6-6 for 16 pts.   For more J/80 Netherlands Grevelingencup sailing information
