The managing director of the yacht club, Mr István Böröcz spoke about the harmony, his club is able to cooperate with the town of Balatonfüred. ‘It is very unique to have a yacht club in the heart of the town, and all our sailors and guests enjoy this fantastic situation’, he said.
The crewmember of the Hungarian boat Johanna, Mr Károly Vezér has introduced the class to those journalists who were not familiar with the Dragon’s timeless elegance. He was very diplomatic when asked about the chances of his boat to sail in the top of the fleet. ‘Everything has to run smoothly and perfect in the boat, then we have chances’, he said. ‘However, there are others among the top crews, who sail more and has a wider experience than we’, he added.
