J80 Open Spring Cup
Bjorkholmen, Helsinki, Finland

Sweden's Bjorn Hansen took a comprehensive victory at the ISAF Grade 2 J/80 Spring Cup in Helsinki, Finland, defeating Joachim Aschenbrenner (DEN) in the final.
Three sunny days of competition culminated in the Swedish World #3 defeating the Dane 2-0 in a light win final.

Aschenbrenner came out on top of the 12 team round robin sailed on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 May as he defeated Hansen along the way.

The Dane advanced to the final following a 3-0 semi-final victory over Women's World #1 Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN), who is gearing up for the ISAF Women's Match Racing World Championship set to be held in Cork, Ireland next week.

Hansen meanwhile had to work harder to earn his place in the final. In the best of five series semi-final it went down to a final deciding race against Reuben Corbett (NZL) and the Swedish racer came out on top.

Hansen kept his cool in the final and sealed the deal with a 2-0 victory. Ulrikkeholm was equally comfortable in the Petit Final, winning 2-0 against Corbett.
