The Venue

The Lake

Lake Attersee, situated in the very south of the Austrian province „Upper Austria“ – the area is called „Salzkammergut“ – 50 km east from Salzburg has a length of 20 km (app.), a width of 3 km (app.) and is 172 m deep.

Wind systems

Because of the unique topographical situation the „Rosenwind (Wind of Roses)“ is the typical thermic wind on Lake Attersee. While having stabile sunny weather a vertical flow from NE comes up because of the heating of the mountains in the south of the lake. This exclusive steady breeze while having high-pressure situation is good for 9 – 12 knots in average, rarely up to 18 knots.
The second main wind direction is a meteorological „west wind“. Very different in strength (sometimes 20 knots and more) and main direction (varying from SSW to NW) it is the typical bad weather wind on our lake. Particularly on the western shore of the lake it brings smooth water but offshore squalls which makes these conditions a real „highlight“ and action for sailors.
The third possibility is the wind from south. This may blow in rainy conditions without westerly flows with 6 - 15 knots, as a morning breeze with 4 to 12 knots and after bad weather situation clearing the sky with up to 25 knots.
