Engineering Challenge Cup (ECC) 2008, Bodrum, Turkey, 3 - 10 May

Engineering Challenge Cup 2008 fleet racing - High Point Yachting regatta

This time, we
were chosen by the 2007 winner and new Commodore, Peter van Beuzekom and his team, strongly supported by the main sponsor Hertel.

Turkey was chosen again! In May 2008, Turkey was a host to the 15th Engineering Challenge Cup Regatta 2009. This time we raced around the
windy Bodrum peninsula visiting historic places such as Bodrum and Iasos and very well organized new marinas such as Turgutreis and Yalikavak.
We, once again, experienced the most friendly welcome everywhere.

Quote from the ECC Commodore, Peter van Beuzekom:
“Dear Sailors,
After having said goodby to you all at the prize giving party we didn’t really felt Engineering Challenge Cup was over. Coming home we read many positive reactions on
the fantastic week we had together in Bodrum and this was our greatest reward for the time we spent organizing ECC 2008. Our team would like
to thank you for your nice words. Organizing ECC 2008 was really a pleassure to us!“
