EBU Congress on the Bay of Kotor

The 5-star Carine Hotel Kumbor boasts the most stunning location, at the entrance of Boka Bay where the Turquoise Adriatic Sea meets the mighty mountains of Montenegro. This well-appointed and modern hotel only opened its doors in 2019. Ideally located in Herceg-Novi, just a few miles from the historic centre with its Clock Tower. This beautiful old town, which is easily reached on the local bus, is full of winding streets and flower courtyards, and boasts an old fortress and an amphitheatre amongst its many attractions. A short stroll from the hotel will take you to the exclusive Poronovi marina for serious shopping or just to sip a cocktail and try to spot an A-lister descending from his luxury yacht. Or simply relax on the hotel terraces and enjoy the most stunning views imaginable across the bay or the terracotta rooftops of the villages dotting the hillsides, as you enjoy the all-inclusive facilities the hotel has to offer.

Chris and Linda Benneworth

Chris and Linda Benneworth

Linda and Chris have been married since 1971, having met while they were teaching at the same high school.

Following successful careers in education they retired in the late nineties, when they started directing together, working at first in local and more recently in overseas congresses. They ran the North Eastern Bridge Association Congress for a number of years in Otterburn, Consett and Gateshead, an event with a deserved reputation for friendliness. Since 2019, they have worked as hosts and director at EBU overseas congresses in Athens, Sicily and Rome. They even play together occasionally to ensure there are full tables. Chris is an EBU national director who also teaches others the art of directing and Linda is a qualified County director.

They both believe that bridge is a great game which is meant to be enjoyed; a holiday is the perfect way of doing that.
