The GKSS Volvo Spring Cup is held in Långedrag, Göteborg, over the weekend of the 17th/18th May. Sailed in the DS37 class yachts, the winner of this Grade 3 event qualifies for a place at the prestigious Stena Match Cup Sweden later this year.

After the first day of the VOLVO Spring Cup, which sailors will go through from Group B have not yet been resolved and this group will continue to race to decide the result on Sunday.
From Group A it is clear that Reuben Corbett (NZL), Rasmus Viltoft (DEN) and our own Magnus Holmberg go through.
Magnus stopped racing a couple of years ago but is making a come-back to mark the 20th anniversary of the Stena Match Cup; he was one of the men behind behind the initiation of this competition.
Efter första dagen på VOLVO Spring Cup är inte grundomgången klar för seglarna i grupp B, de seglingarna fortsätter i morgon bitti.
