The sea of painters and philosophers. The sea of sailors

600 miles of sailing in this sea. An offshore race designed by sailors for sailors

A race where the wind god, Aeolus, will make his own game to control sailors’ seamanship

A race where the dolphins will accompany the boats to drive them faster to the finish

A race with enchanting sunrises and sunsets

A race where mythology rewards sport in a unique water track

All this and much more is the “Aegean 600”. A non-stop race!
