An awe-inspiring annual event is once again set to thrill both participants and spectators alike in late summer
In just a few short years, the Aegean Link Cup – organised with the cooperation of the International Cesme Yacht Club (ICYC) and Cesme Marina, has gained a reputation as a major maritime competition in the north Aegean.
Aegean Link held on 23-27 August 2017 with EAYK, sponsored by ARKAS
The event takes the form of two 15-mile races, expertly marshalled by the ICYC, while Cesme, with its excellent facilities and amenities, is the perfect host marina for this thrilling event.
You’ll feel the buzz in the air even before anyone takes to the water! It all starts with a detailed briefing for the participants and the marshals, during which the routings and instructions are shared. Once all preparations have been made, the real excitement begins.
And that’s not just for the competitors because even if you’re a spectator, just the sight of so many vessels setting sail will take your breath away.
