Sailing on Lake Balaton

Lake Balaton is a wonderful place to sail small yachts.

During the Summer months, the warm weather and gentle breezes are ideal for gentle sails to ports along the 200 km coastline of Lake Balaton.

When the wind pipes up, then it's a completely different story and the flashing lights along the lakeside warn sailors that only experienced sailors with fin keeled yachts may stay on the water. Everyone else should head for the safety of a marina as quickly as possible.

Those who dare stay on the water get the thrills and spills of a Balaton gale ... short choppy waves; the yacht heeled right over with spray everywhere.

Yachtsmen with recognised sailing qualifications may hire a yacht at the marina in Balatonboglár and other marinas around Lake Balaton. Skippered yachts may be chartered by anyone at reasonable prices.

In order to preserve the cleanliness of the water, the only motor boats allowed on the lake are ferries, the water authorities and the police. Yachts may only use their engines to get in and out of marinas.
