History of the Race

The Cyprus Israel Regatta is a continuation of the relationship that started between the two organizing clubs, Israel Yacht Club IYC and Begafigo, during the year 2010 when we participated with our Yacht ALMYRA to the Israel championship which was held at Hertzlia in November 2010.

As sailors we believe that there is a need to enhance the relationship between the countries in the Easter Mediterranean. Our aim is to promote sailing in the Easter Mediterranean and to make this regatta an annual international event.

The 2011& 2012 Regattas were a big success with entries from Cyprus and Israel reaching 32 & 25 respectively. The regatta spirit was very high during racing and during the social events in Cyprus and Israel.

All the participants promised to meet again during the 2013 Regatta.

We all hope that the 2013 Regatta and the others to follow will have even more success with very valuable sailing and social experiences
