The J/22 Cooling Down Regatta is the last event of the season for the J/22 Class in The Netherlands. On day one, a strong wind, with peaks to 35 knots, forced the sailors to stay ashore. As the sailors woke up on day two, it was still windy, but the weather was fantastic for sailing, allowing four tight races amongst the leaderboard. Winning was the visiting German GER 1390 team comprised of skipper Holger Schmitt and crew of Sabine Schoenfeldt and Thomas Hanf with a record of 3-5-1-2 for 11 points. Taking second, just one point shy, was the NED 1595 Dutch team of Ivo Jeukens and Steyn Schiltkamp with a 2-2-5-3 record for 12 points. Third on the podium was another Dutch crew, NED 1295, sailed by Liselotte Verdoorn and crew of Anneloes Krikhaar and Dirk Jan Verkampf. For more J/22 Cooling Down Regatta information, visit
