The Austrian national regatta at Achensee did not go very well in terms of the ranking. I did, however, learn quite a bit. Like how to get better organized, be better prepared and how to get along without my coach on the water. I also learned how to pitch a tent ;-). I've added my mistakes to my mistakes list and hope not to repeat them. My coach Sebi shot a few really cool photos from the shore. SUI1583 is my brother Niklas, SUI1171 and SUI1254 are my teammates Jonas and Nik. They all did pretty well.
We've never met any Austrians at any international regatta before and we were actually a bit surprised that they also know how to sail an optimist...
Coming up next is Jollenregatta Stäfa, a regional regatta organized by my own sailing club.
My name is Simon Kaiser and I simply love sailing.
