Sailing in Hungary

Lake Balaton is a 75 km lake that provides a perfect location to go cruising and experience its many waterfront restaurants by boat.

The Balaton hosted many times the Europian sailing championship in Balatonkenese as well as the Blue ribbon international sailing competition in Balatonfured/Keszthely since 1934, where sailors cover 160 km distance with around 500 sailing boats compiting  for the prestigeous price, the Blue Ribbon.

Hungary is very proud of Fa Nandor, who has sailed around the world three times.

You do not have to be an expert to do either cruising or dinghy sailing though. Crewed boats are available when you can be sailed in serene comfort across the waters a gin and tonic in hand. Alternatively instruction in sailing is available at the many sailing schools across the country.
