Lavrion, Greece — 17 July 2022 – This year’s second edition of the Hellenic Offshore Racing Club’s (HORC) AEGEAN 600 has secured this race’s place among the world’s important offshore challenges. The complexity of the race course, the outstanding range of conditions, the excellence in organization and venue and the performance of the teams has now proven this race is now on every offshore sailor’s “bucket list.”
“I am really happy we did this race,” said Gregor Stimpfl, owner/skipper of the Scuderia 65 HAGAR V (ITA). “This is the second time we competed, and we have experienced the organization to be excellent and supportive, and the race a perfect mix of fun and challenge. I place this among the best of the 600-mile races, and recommend this to everyone.”
The HAGAR V team (shown above) collected armfuls of trophies on stage as overall winners of the AEGEAN 600 Trophy as overall IRC class winner, the Poseidon Trophy as overall ORC class winners, and the winners of the Maxi, ORC 1 and IRC 1 classes.
