Channel Regatta is co-organized by the Offshore Yachting Club of Rhodes and the Sailing Club of neighboring Marmaris (Marmaris International Yachting Club). Each year, one of the two clubs organizes the race in its “own” waters. Some 30 yachts and 250 sailors participate. The race takes place in the first ten days of June every year and lasts 3-4 days.
The regatta, which has become an institution, is being held this year for the 14th consecutive year. This year, the 14th Channel Regatta will be held from 16 to 18 June in the Maritime region of Rhodes and the Offshore Yachting Club of Rhodes will be responsible for the event.
There will be three or four races, depending on the weather conditions. It is expected that approximately 15 yachts of OYC of Rhodes and 120 Rhodian sailors will participate along with 10 Turkish yachts.
