In the case of a sailing trip on Lake Balaton, nothing is set in stone. A lot depends on the current weather conditions. Depending on the wind direction and strength, we plan the day together in the morning. If the weather is favourable, after an optional breakfast and coffee at the harbour café, we set sail and head towards our first jointly determined goal.
In sailing, participants can play an active or passive role, depending on their preference. Our captains have several years of experience, so if there is interest, they are happy to introduce the crew to the secrets of sailing. They can help or take over the control of the boat, perform sailor tasks, or learn to tie sailing knots. One of the favorite programs is the water rescue, which we perform with the help of a buoy or a brave and water-loving volunteer.
At lunchtime, we dock and feed the hungry crew to give them energy for the rest of the day. As usually the hottest and sunniest time is early afternoon, around 2:00 – 2:30 pm, we continue our journey. We dedicate the afternoon more to swimming, so we have the opportunity to anchor and cool off in the big summer heat.
At the end of the day, we recommend that if time allows, we still watch the sunset from the water with a spritzer or cold drink in hand.
