Furthermore, if you have your own life vest, please wear it while sailing. If not, we urge you to borrow one of the available life vests at Boats2Sail.
Signing up is the day before, Wednesday at 8pm. We are currently required to confirm the booking of the boats on Thursday morning with Boats2Sail. If you are in the end not able to attend despite signing up, please cancel on time (Wednesday @ 8pm)!

Sign up here!
Due to the Corona-Virus situation, we are not allowed to linger in large groups of more than 10 people before or after sailing at the facility. Therefore, please be on time (handover B2S boats at 18:30 sharp)! If you already have a partner to team up with, if you need one or have preferences or if you want to be put on the waiting list, please inform Melanie over Whatsapp (+43 664 1567 554). If you have any further questions, contact Melanie.
The Thursday Race series 2020
The race will consist of a single circuit of the buoys on the Alte Donau (more if the wind is very strong), with a single race each time. Entries will consist of two people per boat, helm and crew, with both helm and crew receiving the same points. Guests can sail in the races, but only club members will receive points.
Scoring will be by the low point system (one point for your position in the race) and at the end of the season half the number of races sailed plus one will count towards the Thursday Race Series (e.g. 7 or 8 races sailed, 5 to count). The Thursday Race Series result will count towards the club’s annual championship. The minimum number of entries for a race to take place is three.
Normal Alte Donau rules apply. Infractions of the rules can be exonerated by a 360 penalty except collisions resulting in damage or injury, when both boats will be disqualified (DSQ, maximum points = number of boats in race plus one).
Please note, if you capsize, Hofbauer will charge a recovery fee up to €50, which the skipper and crew of the boat will have to pay themselves.
