June 11, 2016 – Attersee, Austria – The final day of the 2016 Melges 24 European Sailing Series’ second event and Melges 24 Austrian Open Championship hosted by the Segelclub Kammersee was rewarding. Having one single race only executed during two racing days by today there were four races added to the final result taking into account also one discard. The conditions on the beautiful Attersee were all but easy and the best to read its behaviour was the Italian team helmed by Niccolò Bertola and Giacomo Fossati calling the tactics.

June 10, 2016 – Attersee, Austria – The first day on Lake Attersee was sunny and beautiful but somewhat teasing the sailors eager to race at the second event of the 2016 Melges 24 European Sailing Series hosted by the Segelclub Kammersee. Despite of lacking the wind since the midday one race was manageable to execute late in the afternoon. Local sailor Christoph Skolaut with his team on Franz Rocks was rocking the boat being the first one getting over the finishing line in very tricky conditions.
