The Annual International Regatta in Greece
in the Argosaronic Gulf - Saturday 25 Oct - Sunday 2 Nov 2014

Come to the 24th Blue Cup!
"The best fun you can have on water"

From its inauspicious start in 1991 the Blue Cup has grown into a respected & much loved international event, where many nations (12 in 2013) meet annually in friendly rivalry to race yachts between islands in the Saronic Gulf of Greece.

Around 50 chartered bareboat yachts race each year in the Blue Cup, mixing island passage racing with round-the-cans in a route whose detail changes every time.

With an average of 350 sailors in some 50 yachts each year, the Blue Cup attracts entrants from all over the world, many of whom are by now old friends. Each year sees many previous crews reunited, alongside new crews racing and celebrating together

Fun racing is mixed with cocktails, dancing and partying at every port of call, each of which has a special welcome with receptions, parties and prizes for each day's racing.

Join us in 2014 for what we say is stii "the best fun you can have on water!"
