Saturday Morning 3 June ’17 …and they’re off !!

The boats of the annual Northern Sporades Sailing Races sponsored by N.I.K.O.S. and the Offshore Sailing Club of Volos (ΙΟΒΑΘ -Ιστιοπλοϊκός Όμιλος Βόλου Ανοικτής Θαλάσσης) are back again. This weekend of Pentecost is the regatta’s 28th year. Saturday’s contest runs from Skopelos to the open sea of the National Marine Park to finish in Alonissos. Sunday’s competition sets out from Alonissos and concludes in Skopelos. Depending on the wind they should start to cross the finish line at Skopelos port by mid-afternoon Sunday. Presentation of awards for the winners will be Sunday evening in Skopelos. On Monday the boats return to their home ports.
