Sport sailing on Lake Balaton
Although sailboats have been used for fishing on Lake Balaton for a long time, their use for sports purposes has only slowly spread. Pál Festetics established a shipyard in Fenékpuszta in 1760 using Dutch and Italian carpenters, where the first known Hungarian ship, the Phönix, was built, which was inaugurated on July 16, 1797. The sailing was started here in an interesting way by a steamboat, István Széchenyi brought the legendary Kisfaludy to Lake Balaton, and its crew started sailing.

The Balaton-Füred Yacht Association was established in 1867, according to the statutes of which the smallest ship was 25 tons and the crew could be up to 25 people, the members of the club were mostly members of the aristocratic and aristocratic class. Expensive ships were brought from England, but they were soon destroyed. The Balaton Sailing Association was founded in 1882 and the first race was held on August 22nd. The British shipbuilder Richard Young, who settled in Balatonfüred, built the yachts one after the other. The clubhouse in Balatonfüred was established in 1886, which became the main center of sailing on Lake Balaton. In 1881, the Balaton-Füred Yacht Association took the name Stefánia Yacht Association, which was renamed the Hungarian Yacht Club in 1912, and the following year it was renamed the Royal Hungarian Yacht Club (KMYC) with the permission of the Minister of the Interior and the approval of the king. The Budapest-based Balaton Yacht Club was also established in 1912. Next to Balatonfüred, sailing clubs were established in Aliga, Világos, Almádi, Csopak, Siófok and Lelle. This was made possible by the advent of smaller, cheaper ships in the 1920s and 1930s. Source: wikipedia
