for the participant

Regatta for friends organizes a big event with the gennaker (a special extra sail, which is used to increase the driving force) for the May holidays. The venue is Greece. We start from Athens. After the Saronic gulf we will have a nice addition to the program – the passage of the Corinth Canal.

Parus Only format  (yachting only is included in price, no additional services included).

Event programm

Corinth Canal separating the Peloponnese peninsula from the mainland of Greece is a man-made miracle, built in the second half of the 19th century, from 1881 to 1893, by the forces of two and a half thousand workers from different regions of the country. The length of the waterway that passes through the mainland and resembles a deep canyon reaches six kilometers, and the height of the walls is 76 meters. The channel connecting the Corinthian bay of the bay of the same name and the bay of Saronikos serves as a symbol of victory over the natural element, enabling ships and vessels around the Peloponnese to shorten the route by more than 400 kilometers. A century after the end of construction, he lost economic importance due to the narrowness of the path, the danger of landslides and erosion of the walls, as well as the impossibility of passing through it of large ocean ships, whose width approaches 20 meters.
