VISC October News Letter

Dear VISC members and Friends,

The VISC sailing season is drawing quickly to a close with the club catamaran already packed away for winter and the last opportunity for Thursday sailing is this week. But the last sailing event and most probably the highlight of the VISC sailing calendar, the Adriatic Sailing Week (ASW), starts this Saturday in Pirovac, Croatia. With 48 people attending and 10 boats we are expecting a great sailing week.

Sailing School Hofbauer

There have been quite a few rumours about our partner on the Old Danube and base for Thursday sailing “Sailing School Hofbauer”. I am pleased to inform all of you that the Sailing School Hofbauer will continue to operate next year. However, next year a new company is taking over the franchise. Although we do not know all details, Markus Grießler the owner the present franchise, will be giving us an update on the future plans at this year’s AGM.
