Melges 24 Austrian Open postponed to 28 - 30 August 2020
The Austrian government has announced this week that no events, incl. sports events, can be hosted until end of June 2020 due to the coronavirus crisis. In this context the organizing club Segelclub Kammersee, the International Melges24 Class and the Austrian Melges 24 Class have jointly decided to postpone the Austrian Open regatta to 28 - 30 August 2020.
Michael Schineis, Chairman of the Austrian Melges24 Class: “The Melges 24 Class is very thankful to Segelclub Kammersee for its flexibility and its great support to our Class. We had great regattas at Attersee in the past years and we would like to keep this momentum also for the future. The new date of the regatta is just one weekend before we start the Melges24 European Championships in Portoroz and the regatta at Attersee can provide to our teams very attractive training and racing days as preparation of the most important event of our Class in Europe this year.”
SCK President Stephan Beurle: „It will be our pleasure to welcome the Melges 24-Euro-Series-Family at our Club more than ever. Postponing is the right thing to do. All the best for all of you from our side and may the friendly early autumn winds be with us then.”
The status of the next regattas in the Melges 24 European Sailing Series 2020 will be the subject to review for the International Melges 24 Class Association depending on the restrictions in Europe at least one month before each event.
April 8, 2020
This is the second time when the regatta of the Melges 24 European Sailing Series will be held in Austria.
The first time was in June 2016, when a bunch of top Melges 24 sailors from all over the Europe were gathering in Austria to hold on Lake Attersee the second event of the 2016 Melges 24 European Sailing Series valid also as the Melges 24 Austrian Open Championship. The event was hosted by the Segelclub Kammersee in cooperation with the Austrian Melges 24 Class Association, International Melges 24 Class Association (IM24CA) and Austrian Sailing Federation.
Also in 2020 - Event Manager Stephan Beurle from the Segelclub Kammersee is happy to welcome Melges 24 sailors in the club and will make his best that the sailors can have the most out of the racing and enjoy their stay off water.
