A short excursion to Weiden, the venue of the 470s regattas, took place where the national representatives visited the accommodation facilities and the lake shore. 'The apartments at the 'Seepark' in Weiden are ideal for us. Our sailors will certainly feel comfortable here next year,' commented Ott KALLAS, the Secretary General of the Estonian Yachting Union.
'The representatives were impressed by the many possibilities which the lake has to offer. The sailing location, as well as the presentation of the programme of events of the ISAF World Sailing Games were received enthusiastically by all national representatives,' commented Arthur THÜRINGER of the Austrian 470 Class Association, who organized of the meeting.
'I am now relieved after today from the positive reaction received, not only from our programme, the region, the lake and the accommodation offered but also from the diversity of the lake region. This is evidence that we are on the right track,' said the managing director of the ISAF World Sailing Games 2006, Koloman WATZEK.
