Blue ribbon regatta at lake Attersee, August 4th, 2018
Wake up at 5 o'clock in the morning, view from cockpit of Surprise to the north east
At 6 h on the boat, looking back to clubhouse and jetty of UYCAS
Preperations for start . . .
At 7 h the gun but nearly no wind at all
Direction is south, but only slow winds from south-west to west
Some boats try out Spinaker or Genaker
Felix checks the winds
Skipper Georg also looking for wind
The entire fleet - about 70 boats - moving south
some catch a slow breeze and move forward
A Sunbeam 28.1 moving side by side with us . . .
After more than two hours . . . no move at the lake . . !
We reach the first turning mark by 13:20 h . . . after more the six hours
On the way back to north, no big change at all - the furnice is still on, but no prolem for Felix
Close to Steinbach the north-eastern started to blow - thanks God !
Now we move quickly northwards
Short after Steinbach a photo shooting from the shoreline
Sonja, Josef and Clara are watching the boats and send us a photo
Now we move northwards quickly
After Weyregg the wind slows down a little, Felix and Georg are checking the wind
We reach the second turning mark at Kammer and hoist the spinaker - Georg on the sheets
Felix before finish line, after more than ten hours and 36 minutes the racing is over
