The representation starts at 21:15 on Saturday at the port of Spetses.
“Spetses Classic Yacht Regatta 2016” will take place from the 30th of June to the 3rd of July!
The inaugural event of the Spetses Classic Yacht Regatta 2011 was held in September 2011 in the picturesque island of Spetses, only 54 nautical miles from Pireus port. In deference to Spetses’ naval history and tradition, for the first time in racing history, Aegean Classic Schooners raced alongside Classic Yachts, offering an unforgettable experience for both spectators and crews.
The idea of this unique race was to bring together proud institutions with common heritage and classical aesthetics combined with world-class organization creating a memorable event.
In particular, the race featured some of the most renowned classic yachts in Greece against the backdrop of the picturesque historic island of Spetses with its rich naval and shipbuilding tradition which is unequalled in the Mediterranean.
The race includes coastal races with background the Peloponnese and Spetses, as well as circumnavigation buoys in the following three categories:
1) Classic boats, divided into three subcategories based on the year of construction, Vintage (before 1949), Classic (1949 -1975), Spirit of Tradition (1975 onwards)
2) Schooners and
3) Traditional Open Boats.
