Posidonia Cup 2018
The UK P&I, UK Defence Club and Hellenic War Risks sponsored the yacht ARISTOFANI which took part in the 9th Posidonia Cup Yacht Race on 1st June in Greece.
The race is the flagship event in the Posidonia calendar and attracts participation of over 50 yachts and 600 crew who compete for the coveted Posidonia trophy. The race took place in Faliro Bay over a triangular course which was about 16.40 nautical miles. The weather conditions were challenging as the offshore wind was battling with the sea breeze that developed in the early afternoon.
Our own Tania Bourla, Mark Beare, Michael Chanouzas, Alex Gray and Rod Lingard together with invited members, Sozon Alifraghis and Alex Pattakos, participated on the ARISTOFANI which was captained by Olympic sailor Panagiotis Kambouridis.
After an exciting race, the ARISTOFANI finished first (on corrected time) and the crew was awarded the prestigious Posidonia Cup trophy as well as the trophy for first place in the performance category, in a prestigious award ceremony at the picturesque Island Private Club.
