Exploring Lesvos Sailing Holidays area
The Aegean Regatta is an international sailing organisation which started in 2001. Since then the Aegean Regatta sailed along the islands of Lesvos, Hios, Oinousses, Samos, Leros, Ikaria, Kos, Simi, Rhodos, Limnos, Samothraki, Andros, Lipsous, Patmos, Astipalea, Tilos, Skopelos, Amorgos, Kalimnos, Nisiros, Thasos, Syros, Skyros and continues to visit new destinations. Every year the participation was increasing until the entries became about 70-90, or some years even 100. A direct outcome of this great participation was the fact that every year more than 1200 sailors travelled from one island to another and reached islands which were totally forgotten. For the last 12 years, the Aegean Regatta has achieved, not only to strengthen the border islands and to bring the yachtsmen throughout Greece into contact, but also to give many foreign crews the opportunity to get to know the island culture. They all learnt to sail the Aegean Sea easily and to have quality and safe races.
Mytilini Marina is situated on a strategic location for sailing just opposite the Turkish coast at the northeast part of Mytilini's city, the capital of Lesvos island. It is a sheltered port of call or permanent base for yachts cruising the northern Aegean.
