    Dear Team Managers, Thank you for your replies to our previous questionnaire; we know that you’ve been waiting for an answer. You’ll find below the answers to the frequently asked questions. Then we will contact all teams who have special requests. We need to know which hotel you have reserved and the number of people booked in. If you need help for your accommodation or displacements please contact us segreteria@ravenna2014.org. Please enter your hotel details in the table below Team Name Name of Hotel Number staying LUNCH TICKETS The only way to buy food at the Regatta Course is by using a Lunch ticket. There will be no other food outlets at the course. The PONI Catering have prepared 3 different sites for food distribution, and alternative suppliers are not allowed in the Regatta site. Buying tickets in advance is cheaper than paying individually at the restaurants at the regatta course. Lunch Tickets are only for a particular day (For example: ticket issued on 1st September cannot be used on the 2nd September). Please let us know the exact number of lunch tickets you wish to buy. It is very important, with such large numbers of people involved, for the restaurant to know in advance lunch requests for everyone in order to provide good quality food for your team. THE PRICE WILL BE INCREASED ABOUT 20% MORE, IF YOU PAY INDIVIDUALLY AT THE RESTAURANT AT THE REGATTA COURSE. LOCAL TRANSPORTATION: There are two options for transport to the regatta course: A) EXCLUSIVE BUS: to rent a bus to take care exclusively of your team to go and return to the regatta course (WITHIN A DISTANCE OF 35KM MAX FROM THE HOTEL TO THE REGATTA COURSE) is 350 + VAT 22% Euro for EACH day for the return journey . B) BUS SERVICE WITH DRAGON LINES - RECOMMENDED. Ravenna Dragon Line (from the Regatta Course to most of the Ravenna hotels near the Train Station Area) Dragon Sea Line South (from the Regatta Course to Cervia) Dragon Sea Line North (from the Regatta Course to Marina di Ravenna) BUS SERVICE with departure in the morning and return at the end of the racing day. Dragon lines cards: 45 Euro 6 days, 40 euro 5 Days, 30 Euro 3 days, 12 Euro 1 Day It is important to purchase the Dragon Line Tickets in advance. ( Dragon line cards will not be sold on the bus or at the regatta site ) To ensure a good service we recommend to use the 6 day Cards. It’s much cheaper and flexible than using the exclusive bus. The schedule for the buses will be finally worked out based on the numbers booking the service and their hotel locations. We are planning to run many buses in the morning and after racing. Throughout the day there will be a shuttle service every hour. Dragon Line Tickets are only for a particular day (For example: ticket issued for 3rd September cannot be used on the 4th September). Please let us know the exact number of bus ticket you want to buy for each day. IF YOU NEED A BUS FROM THE ARRIVAL AIRPORT TO YOUR HOTEL ASK FOR A QUOTATION FROM THE ORGANIZING COMMITTEE BEFORE DOING IT YOURSELF. We are waiting for your request to offer you better deals than any other private Bus Service, so don’t be in hurry; we will provide the service at the best conditions if you give us the information you require. Please reply to: segreteria@ravenna2014.org. Let us know how many dragon cards you need, if you need transport to/from airport, and how many lunch tickets.
