Racing

There might be a point in time where sometimes, just sailing, is not enough anymore. One way of re-injecting some excitement as we felt it during our first sailing lessons could be —> RACING.

Why we love it? Here just some examples why we do it, what we do and what it does with us: We (Man-Kind) love to compete, want to show that we are the best, toughest and coolest, what we are mostly and most likely not, but at least we try – and that’s already cool (as long as we don’t go overboard ;-). We seek for the perfect tack, the perfect jibe, the perfect trim, the optimum heel (but not the highest heel – that would be a high heel – at least). We learn to maneuver within limited space fast, secure and efficient („jibe in 3 2 1“). We increase our self confidence what will for sure positively reflect on our crew during our next cruise. We enjoy the lovely and excited talks with other addicted maniacs and last but not least the well earned food and drinks after a race day… and some of us even win…

To satisfy most of this needs and out of a great cooperation with boats2sail at Rust we followed the call to participate at 2 major events at lake Neusiedl in this year 2018, which are the Onesails Sprintocup (21 + 22 and 29 July 2018) and the Regionalliga Ost (6 + 7 July and 1 + 2 September 2018).

The following VISC club members are part of the three Sprinto and the one Sunbeam 22.1 crews:
