We haven't even sailed the Great Western Challenge (December 4,5,6, 2015) but already the Notice of Race for the 2016 World Championship and European Championship has been posted on the DN European website (http://idniyra.eu/?p=2995). Registration for the WC and EC begins December 1, 2015.
Austria is the host country and the primary site is Lake Neusiedl located in eastern Austria. The east side of Lake Neusiedl is the Hungry boarder. A quick Wikipedia search reveals the lake is very big. From north to south, the lake is about 36 km long, and is between 6 km and 12 km wide. Also, the lake is no more than 1.8m deep!
