The Aegean Regatta, an International open water Yacht Race taking place annually in the Aegean will take sail from Molyvos this summer. Since 2001, this major sailing race has been held in different ports – stations of the Aegean and brings together sports and culture across the Aegean Sea.
The Aegean Regatta is organized by the General Secretariat of Aegean and Island Policy, in collaboration with the Offshore Committee of Greek Sailing Federation and local sailing clubs across the islands, and is supported by the Molyvos Tourism Association. This year’s organizer is the Offshore Sailing Club of Lesvos.
From August 17 to 24, an estimated 80 yachts from Greece and abroad, will cover more than 100 nautical miles on a route that starts in Molyvos and continues to Limnos and Skyros and ends in Skopelos. As with previous races, the Aegean Regatta will be coupled with various events organized on the islands along its route to showcase the beauty and culture of the Aegean islands. These events, and the intense world class level of competition in the race, have made the Aegean Regatta an extremely important summer event and an annual celebration of the Aegean Sea.
