Rodos Cup 2020

For over 20 years, the Rodos Cup regatta has been held by the Rhodes Yacht Club. It began as a «family» regatta of 12 crews, and now more than 100 teams take part in it every year. This race is very exciting because of the large number of crews. You can check the level of your team and evaluate your qualities as a yachtsman, competing with many other crews from different countries. The level of your preparation is not important! You can learn the basics of yachting under the guidance of an experienced skipper.

The regatta attracts not only with the competitive races and high-class rivals but also with the beautiful route. The race traditionally starts on the island of Kos and finishes on Rhodes. Yachts pass along the most beautiful islands of the Dodecanese archipelago — Kos, Kalymnos, Nisiris, Symi, Rhodes.

The program, in addition to racing, includes dinners at coastal restaurants, parties, and one day of relaxation with an excursion, during which you can see the sights, buy souvenirs or simply sunbathe on the magnificent beach. The final award ceremony of the Rodos Cup takes place at the Rhodes casino.

Vacations in Greece are always a good idea, and competitions in one of the best water areas in the world will be at the top of the list of your favorite yachting races.

    Registration

    Opening ceremony

    We will start at the island of Kos

    It is not by accident that the island of Kos is called the "Garden of the Aegean Sea". The nature and landscapes here are very diverse. Here you will find Mediterranean seals, pink flamingos and even Caretta-Caretta turtles, which are listed in the Red Book of Endangered Species. Kos also has many historical monuments and clean beaches.

    In addition to relaxing on the beach, tourists can also visit historical sites. For example, Asclepeion is a temple complex, which consists of three terraces descending along the slopes of the mountains. They are connected by a staircase. They say that Hippocrates himself studied at the school of medicine at this temple. There is also the Hippocrates Museum in Kos.

    There are also mosques on the island which were left from the years spent under the Turkish rule. The Defterdar Mosque and the 18th-century Haji Hassan Mosque were preserved in the island's capital.

    The beaches here are diverse - pebble and sandy, with white, gold and black sand.

    Freeday in Nisyros

    Nisyros Island was formed from a volcano that last erupted 7 centuries ago. But the volcano is considered active but sleeping. The administrative center of the island is the city of Mandaki. Here, apart from churches and museums, there are ruins of the ancient city of Nisyros. And of course, tourists come here to see the volcano, and swim on the volcanic beaches.

    4th race: Symi – Rhodes

    Closing ceremony

    The island of Rhodes is rich in archaeological artifacts, which make the island of great value not only for Greece, but also for the whole world. Rhodes also has stunning nature - lush trees, beautiful bays, and unusual plants.

    The capital of the island is the city of Rhodes. The medieval city is surrounded by ancient walls. In ancient times, Rhodes was called the "island of the knights." Many streets have retained their medieval appearance. Here you will find the Palace of the Grand Masters of the Order of St. John with expensive furniture and interior items from different eras.

    Other cities of the island are modern resorts with an active nightlife and modern infrastructure.

    Another wonderful place in Rhodes is the Valley of the Butterflies. The Petaloudes Valley is located southeast of the Theogolos Peninsula. Besides the fact that the valley itself is beautiful with waterfalls, streams and emerald greenery, it was also chosen by butterflies, which fly upward as a person comes closer. This is a truly spectacular sight!
