Missing blog, Feb 7
Six inches of fresh nsnow was too much. So the regatta packed up from the beautiful hotel in Balaton and moved to Rust and environs on Neusiedlersee, a lake on the Austrian/Hungarian border.
A bit hectic on check-out with 150 over-aggressive competitors waiting in line. But everyone was mostly patient. The new hotel recommended was open, but small, and a sister hotel in the next town was reopened for us. Rooms were cold! See the picture of Darek asleep in his ice outfit. Rooms come with half-board, meaning dinner and breakfast. Good food and a room full of competitors. Maybe 50 or 60. No internet, however, or pool, jacouzi or anything much except cold.
Stan, head of racing, decided against a four-fleet split and new starting positions, so with snow ice, just a bit rough, racing was scheduled to begin the next morning. (it did, see subsequent post)
