Last summer up in the Austrian mountains, we stumbled upon a Laser regatta at the Union Yacht Club on Wolfgangsee near Salzburg.
It was a great location, the club looked modern and had good access to the lake. The sailors seemed to be a friendly crew.
I can't think of a much better way to spend a weekend, sailing in glorious surroundings which got me wondering about getting into a racing class. There's plenty to choose from and Joseph is growing up quickly so it might be a good way to spend time together.
The big problem is deciding on a racing class and actually learning to race properly.
