Yngling World Championship 2005
Lake Mondsee, Austria

The Union Yacht Club Mondsee and the Austrian Yngling Association are preparing for the Yngling World Championship 2005 at Lake Mondsee, Austria from 15-23 July.
The competition looks set to exciting. About 70 boats will sail in the open fleet with four of the past five World Champions due to compete. Neville WITTEY (AUS) will be defending the title he won last January on his home waters in Sydney. 2002 World Champion, Claus HOJ-JENSEN (DEN), knows what it takes to win and the World Champions of 2001 and 2000, Austrian locals Christoph SKOLAUT and Rudi MAYR, can expect the benefit of local support.

As the equipment for the Keelboat Women Olympic class, the Yngling women's fleet sees some of the world's top sailors competing. About 30 boats will participate this year, including the Olympic silver and bronze winning helms, Ruslana TARAN (UKR) and Dorte JENSEN (DEN). Trine PALLUDAN (DEN) is also back to defend her title.

Located in the western part of the Salzkammergut, Lake Mondsee and the village of Mondsee are well known for the excellent water sports conditions they provide. Situated between steep and rocky mountains there is no current on the 12km long Lake Mondsee.

The first three days of the Championship are for registration and measurement with the opening ceremony and practice race also taking place on Sunday 17 July. There then follows five day's of racing with one spare day.
