The Ikarian Studies Society in collaboration with the Nautical Club of Ikaria, the Nautical Club of Samos, with the support of the Mayors of the municipalities of Ikaria, Samos & Fournoi, as well as the kind support of the Pan Hellenic Open Sea Sailing Club, invite you to the First ever "Ikaria Senior Regatta" (for crew chiefs above 70 years of age - with their friends and families), which will be held in Ikaria from September 18 to September 21, 2017. This week includes a yacht race round-trip from Ikaria to Samos & Fournoi, as well as various events & festivities to honor the participants.

This race has already caught the interest of the international sailing community and we hope it attracts also senior sailors, not only from the neighboring islands, but those of all other Aegean and Ionian islands, so that it is established as an international annual happening of the veteran sailors.

The race will be carried out under the aegis of the Regional Government of Northern Aegean & the Hellenic Ministry of Mercantile Marine and Island Policy.
