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.
