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.
