The second annual Catamarans Cup Regatta takes place October 22 – 29 in Athens, Greece and there is still time to join the festivities.
While Greece yacht charters are extremely popular in early summer, more and more bareboat charter enthusiasts have discovered the advantage of sailing in October. The waters are still warm and the throngs of tourists have headed home. Participating in this late season regatta is the perfect opportunity to experience the ultimate Greece bareboat charter – a holiday filled with sailing, racing, and socializing with boaters from around the world.
Even if you have no or limited sailing experience, you can still participate in the regatta, as many of the yachts have open spaces for novices, where experienced skippers will be at the helm. The cost to join an open space on one of the skippered bareboat catamarans is just € 550 per person based on double occupancy.
If you rent your own bareboat catamaran, the entrance fee per boat is Euro € 480.
Over 15 catamarans have entered the 2011 regatta. Available yachts include a Lagoon 620, Salina 48, Nautitech 47, Bahia 46, Lagoon 450, Lavezzi 40, and an Athena 38.
Billed as a family event, the program begins in Athens, with sailing legs to Poros, Spetses, Leonidio, Dokos, and Hydra. Along the way, participants will enjoy beach barbeques, cocktail receptions, a cooking competition, and a costume party for children and adults.
The overall regatta winner will receive a free 2012 catamaran charter in Greece, valued at € 5550.
The deadline for entries is October 17. For further details contact our destination specialists at 1-800-BAREBOAT or go online at http://www.bareboat.com/contact_us.html
