Two races will take place daily at beaches on Evia (located in Kymi or at Chiliadou) and Skyros, ensuring an action-packed schedule for participants and spectators.
Jet Raid will commence with a welcome reception and parade of jet ski competitors, accompanied by local clubs, dance groups, and sailing clubs, and will conclude with an awards ceremony.

This year it runs under the auspices of the Tourism Ministry, the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO), the Central Greece Region, the municipalities of Kymi & Skyros, and the local port authorities as well as the support of companies like Kymi Palace hotel.
With over 50 participants expected, including a strong international presence, the Akropolis Jet Raid will showcase Greek hospitality and establish Kymi as a tourism destination.
