Organised in partnership with the Aegean Open Sea Yacht Club and Cesme Marina, the highly regarded winter trophy takes place from Cesme Marina.
The trophy runs from January to May and includes 6 races of about 25-30 yachts per race.
On the first day of the races, after the registrations and the information given by Chief Judge Eşref Uzun at the briefing, the IRC classes took their places on the starting line to race on the C1 route and the Support classes on the Geo-1 route.
After the competitive racing, a splendid Cocktail Party and Award Ceremony took place at the Marina Yacht Club.
The Award Ceremony and Cocktail Party took place at Çeşme Marina Yacht Club, with the opening speech and moderation from EAYK Commodore Akif Sezer.
Instead of trophies, plaques representing the donations made to the Behçet Uz Children’s Foundation were presented to the boats that ranked in all classes.
