Logkeeper’s update 2021-03-08

Dear Sailors,

after today´s video call with Roland Regnemer (Organizer Sunbeam) and Markus Hiebeler (Boats2Sail) I have the following news for you:

– Sunbeam training:

The dates for training in the week of eastern are – as said – still subject to evaluations in connection with Covid restrictions. At the moment organized training is not allowed (also not for the Bundesliga teams), only for the professional segment.
As a consequence, we have to remain flexible. On 15 March the government will reevaluate the situation and a few days after that we can expect practical information…

Regarding the training modalities: everybody from novice to expert will have a place. It is our goal to get people sailing on the sunbeam, no matter which level. If you have your team of 4 – fine, if not, also no problem. Teams will also be formed on-site. For the booking it will be possible that a skipper registers a whole team but also single registration can be done.

– Current situation on Alte Donau

You can train alone (e.g. Laser, single handed on the Pirate etc.) or with your family/person living with you in the same household. During the call the idea of a family liga popped up – let’s see 🙂

– Any other business

New sailing school by Boats2Sail on Ottensteiner Stausee – there will be some opening event/”Ansegeln” on 1st May -> mark your calendar if you are interested, it is a beautiful area.

As of April there will be a new “Seefahrtszentrum” at Marina Wien; there you can train mooring maneuvers or make your license for motor boats.

Best regards, stay healthy and patient 🙂
Andreas, your Logkeeper
