Sailing Races

The racing season for sailing enthusiasts opens and closes respectively on Hydra with 2 significant races not only for the island, but also for Greece. In spring, and more specifically during the 25th of March celebration, the Hellenic Open Sea Sailing Club regatta heralds the beginning of summer.

The Historic Nautical Club of Greece is the organization responsible for "closing" the racing season to fall in line with the 28th of October national day celebration. In both events, participation is high and the sight of all the sailing boats attracts visitors to Hydra's port.
