Johnie Berntsson
Sweden
WS Ranking 154
Berntsson Sailing Team

Johnie Berntsson made his entrance to match racing in 1997 and has been progressing up the match racing ladder ever since. He is the two times champion in King Edward VII Gold Cup and has won the Swedish, Scandinavian and European championships. In February 2012, the Swedish Sailing Federation crowned Berntsson and his crew “Swedish Sailors of the Year.”

Berntsson has been very active this past year, competing in many match racing events, in between sharing his time as a major supporter of “Get Kids on Board,” a Swedish youth sailing program.

He is returning for his 10th Congressional Cup appearance, seeking his second Crimson Blazer to match the one he won in 2009.
