Water Sport Festival

153 competitors from countries as far afield as USA & Australia, as well as entries from Europe including UK, Holland, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Slovenia, Belgium, Russia, Ukraine, Poland and home nation, Greece competed over 3 days of fantastic sailing in beautiful Vassiliki bay for races in Yacht, Catamaran, Windsurf & Laser Dinghy Classes.

As well as superb sailing on all three days, competitors, spectators and visitors were treated to three excellent evening’s entertainment including a superb ballet dance show at the local school (Gymnasio) on Thursday and Saturday evenings followed by a procession through Vassiliki by the Lefkas Philharmonic Orchestra, then an Opening Ceremony attended by most of the region’s dignitaries as well as previous Olympic sailing medallists from the Bejiing (2008) and Tokyo (1964) Olympic games.

On Tuesday and Friday two of Vassiliki’s long standing beach clubs put on 2 great beach parties with UK rock bands ‘Snaky Fingers’ performing at ‘Wildwind’ on Tuesday, and ‘Wizard Sleeve’ playing to a huge audience under the stars at ‘Club Vass’ on Friday night.

On Saturday the festivities continued with Lefkas’ traditional music playing well into the night with well known popular singer Effy Thodi headlining the bill.

With such great results possible even in the most difficult circumstances the organisers are already looking forward to next year’s events bringing even more competitors and events to Vassiliki and would like to thank everyone involved in making this event such a success. As event organiser Simon Morgan says ‘There are too many people involved to thank everyone by name…but you know who you are and you have my and the community of Vassiliki’s heartfelt thanks every one of you’
