Amazing Austria – First Snipe Gran Prix in Mattsee
Certain things come to mind when you think of Austria – the Alps, beer gardens, cowbells, yodels, bratwurst, lederhosen, tortes …. and sailing? Yes, the sailing club in Mattsee delivered all at the Alpen Grand Prix.
Just outside of the idyllic city of Salzburg, below the Alps, is a picturesque land of many lakes, and many sailing clubs. The Segel Club Mattsee was host to Snipe sailors from Croatia, Poland, Italy, Austria, United States, and Germany.
