2018

Greece's most prestigious sailing regatta starts tomorrow, Friday July 14th. This year, Superfast Ferries, a Greek shipping company with international presence, is the proud sponsor of the country's fastest and most advanced sailing boat, Optimum3. The company's activities in the area of sea transportation perfectly complement the spirit of the Aegean Rally. Nowhere else are teamwork, meticulous preparation and respect for the forces of nature more important than at sea.

The Optimum3 - Superfast is entering the Aegean Rally for the tenth year in a row (1997-2006). She has finished in first place four times ('97, '99, '01, '04), in second place twice ('98, '02) and in third place once (2000). Her crew of 15 is expected to fight for line honours again while attempting to break a new speed record, which currently stands at 30,2 knots. With 18 Aegean Rallies already in their log books, skippers Pericles Livas and Nikos Lazos are looking forward to an exciting regatta.

Following the tradition of the previous 42 years, the 43rd Aegean Rally is organized by the Hellenic Offshore Sailing Club. The 450nm rally starts at Faliron and, following stops in Amorgos, Samos and Chios, ends in Vouliagmeni, on July 24th. Contestants include all top Greek crews plus a healthy number of foreign crews as well.

Several cultural events hosted by various island municipalities also take place during this period, all of which contribute to the significance of the rally. We wish all crews the best of luck and enjoyable sailing.

Superfast Ferries, a member of Attica Group, own a fleet of 5 ultra-modern ferries which operate on the Greece-Italy and Belgium-Scotland routes. Together with Blue Star Ferries—another Attica Group subsidiary—Superfast Ferries offer high-quality transportation services in Greece and abroad.
