04 Apr RACE UPDATE April 4, 2020
April 4, 2020
The rapid spread of COVID-19 across the globe as well as the strict travel limitations and rules preventing large public gatherings, possibly imposed till May, makes it very difficult for all of us to predict that the start of AEGEAN 600 would be feasible on June 14th.
Therefore, the Hellenic Offshore Racing Club, organizing authority of AEGEAN 600 Yacht Race, is obliged to examine the postponement of the race for a later date within the summer season. The new probable dates will be between mid-late July / August 2020. Considering how the virus situation will evolve, a final decision will be made no later than May 10th.
The Organizing Committee continues the preparations in order the inaugural 600-mile sailing event to meet everyone’s expectations and give to all the participants, supporters and the sailing community a race to remember in one of the most beautiful sailing venues of the world. As we look forward to seeing you all at the starting line, we wish for everyone to stay strong, keeping his community and loved ones healthy and safe.
