We are happy to inform you that Sail the Blue Yachting is supporting this year’s 1st International Yacht Rally starting in Corfu and going around the Peloponnese running May 4 through 25, organized by the KEDROS SYN Foundation. The initiative, also presented at the 2019 Dusseldorf Boot Exhibition is a new fresh project that will promote the most scenic harbors in the Ionian Sea.

Within 3 weeks, sailors will be visiting 14 ports over the course of 478 miles for a one-of-a-kind unforgettable experience.

Starting at Gouvia Marina on the 4th of May you will sail down to Paxos, Lefkas, Ithaka, Kefalonia, Zante, Katakolon/Olympia, Pilos, Kalamata, Porto Kayio, Monemvasia, Porto Kheli/ Mycynae/Epidaurus/Nafplion, Poros and will finish at Olympic Marina in Lavrio.

You will experience the sea route of the Ancient Greeks and discover one of the most beautiful and mythical parts of Greece – Peloponnese – within a great yachting family, with maximum support and safety. Save money by avoiding the Corinth channel pass (!) and visit the most important places of interest in the region, taste the local wine and food and get closer to the rich Greek history and traditions.

The Rally is of a non-competitive nature with a multinational team of yachtsmen, a chance to make new friendships, enjoy yourselves, and discover Greece.

We at Sail the Blue Yachting believe this will be perfect for yachtsmen to experience the true color of Greece, – that is the blue, of course – and seize the opportunity to do so in a controlled environment, escorted by professionals, without the stress of planning routes, berthing, et cetera.

The event is organized under the Hellenic Ministry of tourism, Greek National Tourist Organization, Government of Peloponnese and the Government of the Ionian Islands auspices with the support of the D Marin Group including Marina Zeas, Lefkas and Kalamata as well as Marina Olympic (Lavrio), Ionion Marine and Cleopatra Marina (Preveza).

The entrance fee includes:

  • Rally Handbook
  • Rally Flag
  • Berthing, water and electricity in all itinerary ports
  • Any kind of support and assistance during the event
  • Welcome and farewell dinner and comprehensive social program
  • Two organized bus tours to Olympia and Mycenae- Epidaurus- Nafplio
