The rally, organized by the Hellenic Offshore Racing Club (HORC), is the oldest and most important open-sea race in Greece. Forty-four crews are taking part this year, including two from Australia and three from Ukraine. This year’s race covers some 450 nautical miles and is widely expected to be tougher than the previous ones. The route is Faliron – Rethymnon – Aghios Nikolaos – Ios – Vouliagmeni.

The International Aegean Sailing Rally, Greece’s premier sailing event, runs from July 13th to July 22nd, attracting top Greek sailing teams and international participants. The event has been put on by the Hellenic Offshore Racing Club since 1964.
