Successful OK weekend in Viken – July 18-19

The latest OK fleet in Sweden arranged a weekend of sailing amid the Covid-19 pandemics. A day of racing arranged by WBS on Saturday and a training camp with a gate start and a simple two mark course on Sunday.

Beautiful conditions in Viken

4 boats joined from the west coast joined the 7 locals. Three races were sailed under clear blue skies and moderate southerly winds. Thomas H-M won all three races tightly followed by the locals Benjamin Hammerö and Christian Scharup.

The winner gets all the tomatoes

On Sunday the sailing continued with more tight racing. The short distance from launching the boat until race start catered for maximum amount of time on the water to polish the skills. Once on shore everyone concluded that it was a successful weekend!

Big thanks to WBS (Vikens Båtselskap) for arranging the race and to our friends from the west coast for driving down!
