It was a terrific victory for the S.V. Kreuzlingen Team in the Swiss J/70 Sailing League finale in Neuchatel, Switzerland. It was wonderful sunny, windy sailing weather all weekend long for the last regatta of the season and the eighteen teams that were participating in the finale.

After a solid performance in the penultimate event in Neuenberg, the S.V. Kreuzlingen (SVKr) with Tom Rüegge, Stefan Stäheli, Michael Herrmann and Jens Lichtblau were nearly unbeatable in the fourth and final act of the Swiss J/70 Sailing Super League in Neuchâtel.

After 28 demanding races with strong winds exceeding 30 knots at times, the SVKr not only claimed the victory in this final act, but was also in the overall standings. The biggest surprise of the season was the ascension of the two Bordeaux de Tribord teams- La Neuveville and the Société Nautique de Bordeaux.

Both teams were competing with the Societe Nautique Geneva team all season long. In then end, the S.V. Kreuzlingen team took their first Swiss league title. Perhaps, even more remarkably, the Bordeaux de Tribord- La Neuveville team took second place in the overall results, making it the most surprising team of the season to leap onto the podium.

Co-driver Lorenz Kausche and his team finished just one point ahead of the season favorites- Société Nautique de Genève (SNG)- which had Guillaume Girod at the wheel. A prior Swiss champion, the Regatta Club Bodensee (RCB), had improved a lot during the regatta in Neuchâtel after some bad early races, but did not make it onto the podium.
