Free beer and the best of local wines

  • May 3, 2018

Dragon events are famous not only for the fierce competition, but also for the friendly atmosphere and the great events. We wanted to stick to this tradition and at the same time to introduce you the best of Balaton: Hungarian cuisine, regional wines and the hospitality of our fleet.

Thanks to our sponsors, three Hungarian wineyards, we have the opportunity to feature the products of three different wineyards from the region: Homola and Szt. Donát from Csopak, just a couple of kilomters from Balatonfüred, and the special wines and champagne from Kreinbacher in Sümeg.

However, we know that no Dragon event without free beer – that is why you can be sure to have a big cup of beer in the club every day after the daily races!

The Dragon Sailing Week, the Hungarian Championship and the Europeans,  will be crowned by a gala dinner in the most famous hotel around the lake: Hotel Anna Grand, the host of the Anna Balls, a traditional beauty contest every year in Balatonfüred.

The planned social will be held in the Balatonfüredi Yacht Club, in the big central area under the roof. If no exact time given, right after races.
