Friendly events for everyone

Sharing the fun has always been part of the beauty of sailing. And this sharing can happen with your existing friends and family or with new like-minded sailing friends that you will meet during our events.

The concept of our friendly One-Design Regattas is putting together your love for sailing with our X-Yachts charter fleet of identical luxury performance sailing boats, like the five X46 and the two Xp44. The great setup and sailing conditions of the Greek islands help us a lot too!

We annually organise four events out of which two take place in spring and two in autumn. The duration of each event is a week but people can join for less days if they wish. Check below on the When & Where paragraph for our upcoming scheduled dates.

You can book a whole boat (or more) or you can book just a twin or double cabin.

During our friendly regattas weeks you will spend time getting familiar with your boat docked or out there sailing, socialising with all your new sailing friends and our friendly X-Yachting support team , sailing one or two races every day (according the specific schedule) on carefully engineered routes inshore or light offshore and enjoying good food, drinks and lots of laughs at the end of each day at different islands.

Those are fun guaranteed events that put a big smile on everyone’s face. By the end of the week you will be relaxed, energised and full of memorable moments and most probably a few good new friendships to take with you back home.

Who is it for?

Our One-Design events are designed for everyone. No matter your level we will make sure to fit you in, either by adding one or two proficient members in your crew or adding a professional skipper. If you are a group of experienced sailors and you want to privately charter a whole boat and race as a team then this is fantastic too. We will make sure you will get you in a class which is similar to your level.

When & Where

The starting point of our events is at the Olympic Marina, in Lavrio, Athens, Greece.

Lavrio and more specifically our base is a 35’ drive from Athens International Airport and we are happy to organise your transfer to and fro.

The next upcoming One-Design Regatta events are on the following dates:

From Saturday 26/10/2019 to Saturday 2/11/2019

From Saturday 2/11/2019 to Saturday 9/11/2019

Detailed programming for each departure will soon be online. We recommend you to send an inquiry to our Booking team and will make sure we notify you once the program is online.

Booking a whole boat or just a cabin

You can either join by chartering a whole boat (or more than one if you are a bigger group) or if you are traveling solo or with a partner you can book just a cabin with a double or split bed.

Remember all our boats have a very comfortable 3cabin/2wc layout, so they can accommodate six persons in the three double cabins and another 2-4 adults/youngsters -if needed- at the salon area sofas or the aft cabin sea berths. For more info consult the different boat layouts and accommodation you can find descriptions on our Fleet section or proceed by sending a specific inquiry to our Booking team.

One-Design Regattas  vs Adventure Racing

Both are fun guarantee events that bring together like-minded sailing enthusiasts. Night accommodation on board of our boats is included on both.

The One-Design Regattas take place usually around the area of our main base in Lavrio and the races happen usually in inshore waters or on a light off shore route around land marks, islands or buoys. The area we usually sail is the Argosaronic gulf and the beautiful islands there. Given that the weather is good, the channel between Lavrio, Kea and Kythnos can be the case too. The exact route and night stops is decided -a few days before the departure date- based on weather forecast. Quite a bit of free time sailing is usually the case between the scheduled race starts during the day time and you spend the night on different islands such as Aigina, Poros or Kea and Kythnos.

The Adventure Racing happens on an more hard core offshore scheduled route around different areas of the Aegean sea, with more miles per day covered and will probably get a bit more salt on your face. This is not a race track around buoys but the start and finish line is on different Greek islands. Since the routes are longer usually every second day is a relaxing day for people to explore the island and spend time recovering on land or if the feel like it use the boat and train on their free will.

Both type events are open to everyone and our team will make the best to fit you in and make you feel comfortable and excited.
