With the northern seasonal wind, called ‘meltemi’ blowing throughout July and August, the Aegean transforms into an exciting playground for adventure, adrenaline, tactics, endurance and teamwork.

The annual Aegean Rally, now in its 51st year, is the perfect occasion to be part of a unique experience. Considered the biggest sailing race in Greece and one of the most difficult in Europe, it covers almost 450 nautical miles over a week around the Aegean.

This year, the Aegean Rally race course has taken the participants to Milos, Astypalaia and Ios, before the spectacular finish under the Poseidon temple in Sounio.

But it is not all about riding the waves – the magic behind the event is that it is an excellent opportunity to visit the Greek islands, experience the local culture, party until the sun comes up and meet like-minded people – people that value freedom as much as you do.

If this is something that you want to be part of, the Blue Mosaic team has been part of the Aegean Rally event for many years and ready to share with you the opportunity to experience the winds in the Aegean Sea.

Until then, you can enjoy the imagery from the comfort of your chair!
