5.5m racing in Austria has a long history, starting with 5.5 AUT 1 "Lucky Chance", the Hood designed dream of a young boatbuilder, who has in 2010 been reunited with his boat, for his 80th birthday. "Lucky Chance" will be racing again, soon.
Austria has seen Olympic participation in 1960 with an A&R built boat and is today active with Classic boats like AUT 9 being a keen ROLEX Cup participant, in Evolution with AUT 16 being the winner of last years "Willi Lehmann Preis" in Berlin and in the Modern category with AUT 21 winning the Swiss 5.5m Champion title in 2010, on the Lake of Constance.
Quite a number of 5.5m boats are located in Austria, some of them being used just for pleasure cruising, but several are returning to racing. The latest additions to the racing fleet are AUT 24 & AUT 25 on Traunsee and AUT 26 on Attersee, three Evolution boats.
