Diaporos Regatta 2016 – Ormos Panagias, Halkidiki

Ormos Panagias puts on a show!

Each year the Nautical club of Ormos Panagias organizes the the Diaporos Regatta that gets the season off to a good start for water sporting activities. As in past years, these events are normally held twice a year, in July and then again in September, with races for different types of craft.

This year we give an opportunity for those with windsurfing boards, sailboats and catamarans to show us what they can do. It truly is an international event as participants gather from many countries across Europe and the world to enjoy the 3 days of Watersport competition in the beautiful setting of Sithonia.

The course will begin from the Ormos Panagias harbour and heading east past the promontory and arround the island of Kalogria and back.
