Storm Capital Sail Racing NOR751

September 2, 2019 - Askoy, Norway - 26 teams in total - 24 from Norway, one from Germany and one from UK were competing for the title at the Melges 24 Norwegian Open Championship hosted by Askoy Seilforening, Bergen, Norway on August 30 to September 1.

Race Committee managed to deliver 5 races, since only one race in strong conditions (11-12 m/s and heavy rain) was sailed on Friday, no races on Saturday due to even more wind than on Friday and then 4 races in less wind (7-8 m/s) on Sunday.

Askøy Seilforening and Melges Norway delivered an awesome and enjoyable event. However the weather didn't cooperate that much with the organizers and sailors this time, then the sailors were treated very well ashore and hospitality of the club was great!
