The core of the Corfu Cup Regatta involves the maxi, mini-maxi sailing yachts, plus swans and wallys, manned with professional crews numbering up to 25 sailors on board each boat.
Corfu will become host of an exciting sailing competition involving some of the world’s top sailing yachts. Their huge sails will unfold in the waters of its main port, in a series of Windward-Leeward races, in full view of spectators enjoying the spectacle from the old town of Corfu. A coastal race traversing the entire eastern shore of the island is also part of the four day Regatta.
This test event has been incorporated in the International Sailing Federation’s 2013 Calendar, aspiring at becoming a permanent part of the program of the races in the future.
The event is under the auspices of the Greek National Tourism Organisation.
