For the fourth consecutive year bwin has “dressed” in its colours, the Spetses Classic Yacht Regatta, the event that is already an institution for Greek – and not only – sailing. Leading sailors met in cosmopolitan Spetses, honoring the 10-year anniversary event with their presence.
The Spetses Classic Yacht Regatta is one of the top marine events, as well as one of the most important competitions in the Mediterranean, with a significant impact at home and abroad! It is not just another sailing race; it is the most special regatta that takes place in the Greek seas and attracts the attention of hundreds of tourists. It is aimed at classic boats, traditional boats, and family dinghies, all of which you will not find anywhere else. These are boats that have made history in the seas of the world and that have taken part in top regattas.
As in all major events, Bwin was there, to promote classical sports, good sportsmanship, and local communities, and to support the race which is under the auspices of the Hellenic Naval Club. Spectators had the opportunity to admire rare boats from Greece and abroad and to enjoy high-level sailing competitions, in a celebration of seamanship and the art of woodworking. All these -literally- unique boats, compete having the magnificent island of Spetses as a background, forming thus a magical spectacle to the audience’s eye.
On Friday morning, the boats unfurled their sails and the crews begun to demonstrate their seamanship, offering impressive moments to the hundreds of spectators who were on the island!
The wonderful “battles” in the Costa-Spetses Strait, created emotions of excitement, generating afterwards thousands of enthusiastic stories on social media. Spetses was, as always, fully prepared for the wonderful event, while in Poseidonion Square the Bwin atrium dominated, which “dressed” the awards that took place after the end of the games. Besides, the leading betting brand organized the crew party on Friday night, where sailors and friends of the Classic Yacht Regatta had the opportunity to exchange opinions and make their assessments!
At the bwin party, Stephan Heilman, Managing Director Europe of the leading betting brand bwin, addressed the participants: “We are very proud to be part of this great event! I would like to congratulate the organizers for 10 successful years of the Spetses Classic Yacht Regatta. We are happy to support this great event for the last 4 years and we would like to be here for the next as well, as supporting sports is an important pillar of Bwin’s strategy worldwide. Honestly, I’m enjoying my first time at a sailing race!” The 2022 anniversary event has gone down in history. See you in 2023, with even more crews and the same joy for sailing!
