OPEN GREECE CUP 2020

The international Open Greece Cup 2020 regatta is organized together with the City Hall of Corfu.

Two divisions participate in the Open Greece Cup 2020 — the BAVARIA 46 monofleet and the ORC. The regatta will gather 300 participants from 18 countries! Among the crews, there are the best yachtsmen, winners of the international regattas, such as ROLEX MIDDLE SEA RACE, BAVARIA CUP, HEINEKEN, and others. Do not miss the opportunity to compete with the best of the best and test yourself! We are glad to see beginners at the regatta! If you do not have experience, you can learn the basics of yachting under the guidance of a skipper and experienced sailors.

The prize fund of the regatta is 6,000 euros.

As part of the regatta, special name races will be organized, and prizes for inshore and offshore races will be given:

— Corfu Island Cup,

— Marina Gouvia Cup,

— Ionian Islands Cup.

In addition to racing, gala dinners will be organized in the best restaurants in Corfu. There will also be a fascinating coastal program for participants in the regatta and their families vacationing on the beach.

In Corfu, the fleet will be in the Gouvia marina. There will be 9-11 races (inshore / offshore). There will also be one day-off on the unique island of Antipaxos.

In 2020, we will again organize four youth teams. This is a unique opportunity to be at the regatta with the whole family. Your children will learn yachting skills with the guidance of experienced skippers and assistants. They will conquer the sea, learn the sea knots, master racing science, raise gennaker and race with their parents. And in their free time, they will even learn blogging. Children’s crews are divided by age as follows:

CHILDREN’S CATAMARAN (8-10 years old) — rest, swimming, entertainment

SHIPBOY SCHOOL (10-12 years old) — the first steps in sailing — training and practice in the race

TEENAGERS (13 — 16 years old) — they will have a separate team and participate in all races

YOUNG PEOPLE (17 — 20 years old) — young and daring, who will participate in all races.
