The Aegean Regatta 2016 will take place from 20 to 27 August in the sea area of the North and Northeast Aegean Islands.

The starting port is the marina of Porto Carras in Halkidiki and the boats will head to Myrina of Lemnos, then to Agios Efstratios and to Molyvos in Lesvos and the finish will be in Mytilene.

This year’s innovation of Aegean Regatta is the island of Agios Efstratios, which will be destination for a sailing race, first time in the maritime history.

The Aegean Regatta is an international sailing event started in 2001, with two main goals:
1. To give the opportunity to the yachtsmen and women to get familiar with islands and destinations which they would not decide to visit
2. .To strengthen the local communities financially and give them a chance to attract visitors

This venture began from the Open Sea Community, the Hellenic Sailing Union and the Ministry of Aegean.

The Aegean Regatta 2016 is organized by the Secretariat General for the Aegean & Island Policy, with the support of North Aegean Region, Lesvos Municipality, Agios Efstratios Municipality and Molyvos Tourism Association. The Mytilene Sailing Club has undertaken the coordination of the event.
