2008 ECC, Bodrum, Turkey

Engineering Challenge Cup (ECC) 2008

Following the success of ECC 2007 in Gocek, we were chosen again to organize ECC 2008, for 450 participants on 70 boats. 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. So in May 2008, Turkey was again 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 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 ECC 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 spend by organizing ECC 2008. Our team like to thank your nice words. Organizing ECC 2008 was really a pleassure to us!“

Lorenzo Ghelfi, Boat 14:
‘Many thanks Sasha. The event was really great!
What crowd of sailors and engineers! Unfortunately, we haven’t had the chance to offer you a burning hot SWISS cafe! Next time, somewhere. With best regards, Lorenzo’

Inken Braunschmidt, Boat 34:
‘For us it was a fantastic windy week. I love weather like that we had, thats the reason we had a lot of fun and we were lucky that we didn`t had any damage! And of course: it was all perfect organised, thank you again for your good support!’

Christian Hepfer, Boat 64:
‘First of all, I would like to thank you and the ECC team for the organisation of a great week of holidays and sailing in Turkey, we really enjoyed it very much. You and the whole team did a great job.’

Carsten Heise:
‘We all arrived safely and at time. You are totally right it was a perfect week in a really nice area. I had never such good weather conditions for all the days. You and your team accept the challenge and have done it quite well.’
