Eight great teams, consisting of the crème de la crème of the sailing world, race against each other in a series of Match Races against the magnificent backgrounds of Paros (Cyclades), Andros (Cyclades) and Piraeus-Athens.
The opening races took place on April 11-13, 2014 at the magnificent island of Paros in the Cyclades, namely in the gulf of Paroikia. The second venue was the picturesque gulf of Chora at the island of Andros, the northernmost island of the Cyclades, and the race was held on May 2-4, 2014. The much awaited finals are to be held in Mikrolimano, a lovely yachting setting in Piraeus, on September 26-28, 2014.
Match racing is a particularly exciting type of racing characterised by fast rhythm and constant action since there is direct and aggressive rivalry between the two opponents. In addition, the inshore course area gives spectators the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful and breathtaking spectacle.
The first Hellenic Match Racing Tour, organised by Icarus Sailing Media, takes place under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Tourism and with the support of the Greek National Tourism Organisation.
