The Blue Cup was established in 1991
by the Vernicos Yachts Club
and takes place each year at the end of October and in the first week of November. Sailors from around the world spend nine days racing
their sailing yachts on the route which changes slightly each year.
Each port of call offers cocktails and parties after the race, together with prizes for each day's racing and the last then hosts the Grand Prize Giving Ceremony
for the most successful participants.
There are usually fifty chartered bareboat
yachts that participate in the event, gathered in the Dream Yacht Charter fleet
and steered by crews from different countries, such as Russia
, Austria, Norway, Belgium, Hungary, Poland, Italy
and many more. Some of the crews take part in the regatta for years now, but new crews are always welcome to join in. If you do plan to join this race on a charter yacht we recommend to check the offer on our site specialized in chartering yachts in Athens area
Standard charter yacht equipment is used for the race, so you do not need any specialist knowledge to participate. Of course, there is a Race Committee
in charge which oversees the race and ensures a fair competition.
Join in and see how sailing around the Saronic Gulf
can be fun and exciting, an experience you will remember for years to come!
