The course is longer than other similar sailing regattas, such as the Bol d'Or, the Rund um and the Centomiglia, at a distance of 155 km or 84 nautical miles in length, with the course record set at 7 hours 13 minutes by Fifty Fifty in 2014.
The Kékszalag was sailed in the 'even years' between 1934 - 1942, after World War II in the 'odd years' between 1947 - 2001, and yearly ever since.
The regatta starts and finishes at Balatonfüred, and race participation is open to everybody.
