SALZBURG MOZART- FLEET , Falkenstein-Trophy and Salzburg Landesmeisterschaft-  Championship of Salzburg –country

The annual Falkensteintrophy this year was almost a Family Regatta… 14 star-boats took part and therefrom 8 teams were family crews.

3 couples, 2 crews-of fathers and daughters, 3times fathers and sons, not often this happens in starboat-regattas.

After an excellent brunch Saturday morning  the race manager Heinz Moche called right away to start.     

Even in bad weather a constant light „Brunnwind“ –from NO- enabled 3 races during afternoon .

The first race  was won by local champion Franz Kloiber, sailing with his daughter Gabi Kloiber-Meindl-. Followed by just married

Couple –Claudia Graber+Franz Kloiber Jr.  An excellent beginnig oft he sailor-Family Kloiber

The following two races were won by  very experienced Crew Josef Urban/ Marcel Beltz.- unbeatable !

With an excellent dinner the  great sailing-day was finished.

Sunday morning first start was planed 10 am, but too light wind  enabled sailing.  At noon a firth race could be started –

In lightwind conditions with changing wind directions the firth race was very tricky. But the experienced sailor Sepp Urban with

Marcel Beltz again finished first and so they clrearly could win  this event.

The Championship of Salzburg country- this times not was won as so often from Franz Kloiber sen. , but from the

Next generation of  Kloibers.. Claudia Graber-Kloiber with her husband Franzi Kloiber Jr.
