The 2019 edition of the Swiss Sailing Women’s Cup enjoyed two glorious days of sailing with a south wind in the 5-10 knots range. It was a great atmosphere on the lake for the 15 teams from all four corners of Switzerland. In total, 20 races were sailed. Saturday started windless. Toward midday, an initial breeze blew across Lake Zurich, and the wait came to an end. But, after just an hour of sailing, the heat dominated again, and another postponement kicked in. Late in the day, a south wind of 5-9 knots enabled Race Director Rolf Frey to fire off a few more races to complete the day. On Sunday, the south wind welcomed the sailors, and after some passing rain, the south wind was back, the sun was starting to show, and races were run. The fight for victory between YC Horgen and the Zurich Sailing Club (ZSC) remained exciting to the end. The ZSC team with Amrei Keller, Theresa Lagler, Zoé Straub and Annika Pellegrini won the duel (almost a match race) against YC Horgen with Alexa Bezel at the wheel. The third podium place was hotly contested between the CV Lausanne and the sailors of the SV Thalwil. Lausanne took the third podium place tied, but took the bronze based on their victory in the last race. Even though the winning teams dominated on points (the two winners scored only victories and second places), the course was very close and exciting.
