Blue Ribbon Regatta - round the lake long distance race, 14th - 16th July, 43rd Balatonfured, Hungary. The 145-kilometre race is the longest round-the-lake competition in Europe. A total of 588 sailboats participated in this year's race. We fighted a 10 hours long stormy weather during the night. This picture is taken in the next morning, when the waves are still big enough to slow us down and we need to head upwind.
