70 days left until Europeans in Hungary

Post by naray » Sun Mar 18, 2018 3:08 pm

Dear Dragon Sailors,

the days are ticking away fast until the horn signaling the first warning for the first race of this year’s Dragon European Championship on Lake Balaton will sound. As of today, March 18th, only 70 days are left.

The organizing team is very busy: we are helping you with the registration, responding daily to accommodation requests, planning social events, negotiating with sponsors. Your interest is very high and we are pleased to help you in any matters.

We would like to remind you that all of you who register until April 15th, the entry fee (if received by that day) will be only 700 Euro. As of today, 43 teams have made their online entries. You can join them by clicking this link: http://bit.ly/2pPcH70. Registration takes only a couple of minutes, and if you have any problems, just let us know here: mailto://hello@dragoneuropeans2018.hu and we are going to help you.

As a Dragon sailor myself, I am completely aware that booking an accommodation for your team members and friends are always a major concern. If I may give you a piece of advice: do it right now, best together with your registration. Late May is already the pre-season at lake Balaton - i.e. the best hotels and pension are already fully booked.

Our friend and fellow-Dragon-sailor, András Simon is in charge of checking the best available options for you. He is keeping on negotiating with hotel owners and managers which is sometimes not very easy. He asked me to inform you that our pre-booked options are about to expire in a few days – they will be available later only at a much higher price. So if you want to choose from the best opportunities: do not hesitate to inform us!

Speaking about sailing, we are pleased that some of you have already opted to use the opportunity to sail the Hungarian Dragon Championship right before the Euro. Dmitry Samokhin, Nicola Friesen with Vinci Hoesch, Garlef Baum from Switzerland – just to name a few – will be there… For the teams entering the Euro the entry fee is as low as 250 Euros… – worth considering, hmmm…?

We hope that your season is starting the way you like and hope to see you soon. Until then you may find a lot of actual information on our website: www.dragoneuropeans2018.hu. Or the social-minded among you - just go to Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dragoneuropeanshungary/

March 18th, 2018

Yours faithfully

Vilmos Naray
Head of Organizing Committee
Dragon European Championship 2018
