Season-End Sailing Rally In Greece With Greek Sails

News Published Date : Sunday, 28 August, 2011 – 18:58

Every year for the past 26 years on the last weekend of October, Greek Sails have celebrated the end of another season of work and sailing by organising a weekend of sail racing for local and visiting sailors alike. Everybody is welcome, Greek Sails customers, quayside staff and sailors from around the area, so if you have your own yacht in the area or you fancy an end-of-season yacht charter with a difference, this is an excellent opportunity to have some fun and pit your sailing abilities against others without any of it being taken too seriously.

Around the Island of Poros Race

The weekend is organised into two days of sail racing, one around the ‘cans’ in Poros bay on the Saturday followed on the Sunday with a race anti-clockwise around the island of Poros. The Saturday evening is always spent in a local quayside bar with the prize-giving for the first day’s racing, and then on the Sunday evening following the actual ‘Round the Island race’, there is a quayside barbeque with Greek-sized portions of food and drink and a second prize-giving for the Sunday’s race winner plus the overall weekend winner.

Greek Sails Holidays

No boat? No problem! Why not arrange a short duration charter. Fly out to Athens on the Wednesday or Thursday and pick up a yacht for a few days. Have a day or two getting familiar with your yacht, or simply enjoying some of the wonderful sailing around Poros, then join us for the Saturday and Sunday racing before going home on the Monday.
