The Silver Ribbon will be the first sailing race of the year.

This year, for the third time, on June 6-7, the Spartacus Sailing Association will organize one of the most exciting rehearsals of the big boat field, the Balatonföldvár-Balatongyörök-Balatonföldvár night tour competition: the Silver Ribbon will be the first domestic sailing competition of the year.

At the beginning of May, the Hungarian Sailing Association (MVSZ) decided that the competition system could be restarted by minimizing safety risks, following the principle of gradation, and from June 1 it would be possible to organize races in the official system.
In his heraldic writing, Spartacus recalls that the Silver Ribbon has been a thrill for every year so far: stormy winds in 2018, very light winds in 2019, and restrictions imposed in 2020 due to the coronavirus epidemic could cause a headache for participants.
In the competition, the organizers take maximum account of the recommendations of the MVSZ: entries can only be made through the VIHAR system, the reduced entry fee due to the mandatory exclusion of party events can only be paid by bank transfer, there is no party entry. The award ceremony will not take place, and the prizes - including the first place permanent wanderer's award, a heavy silver tray - will be delivered to the winners later by the organizers.
What remains the same: the start will take place in the water area in front of Balatonföldvár on Saturday, June 6 at 6 p.m., and you can enter validly until 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 7. The Silver Ribbon also offers preparation for the Blue Ribbon, on the approximately 80-kilometer distance, you can update the tricks of night driving, navigation and communication inside the ship.
He won the race in 2018 on the AC45 catamaran, led by Róbert Vándor, and in the strong wind he covered the distance in just 3 hours and 4 minutes. Last year, the New Black Jack Décision 35 catamaran won, with ten-time world champion Austrian Roland Ga: bler at the helm. This team needed exactly five hours more minutes to reach the finish line in minutes in the weak wind than the previous year.
