Like in 2014 the season opener in Portorož provides a good opportunity to start your season early in the spring enjoying southern weather and to continue racing after in the same area in Balatonfüred, on the Lake Balaton in May. Portorož is located just over the Italy/Slovenia border and has the excellent motorway links from across Europe. It's then just a 5-hours-drive to Lake Balaton. For more information please visit the website of the Yachting Club Portorož or contact Branko Parunov on e-mail branko@skipper.si if you require any assistance in planning your visit.
