On Friday, the 26th of July, Rodos Cup 2019 came to an end.

The international sailing race, organized by Offshore Yachting Club of Rhodes and the Region of South Aegean, was crowned with racing and organizing success, reaffirming its importance as one of the top sailing races of the South east Mediterranean.

The 537 sailors from 13 countries that participated completed the last leg Friday morning, carrying new experiences and beautiful images.

The boats started from the picturesque island of Symi, and finished at Rodos, early noon, in the area of the Aquarium.

The spectacle enjoyed by the visitors and bystanders that were lucky enough to be at the northern tip of the island at the time of the conclusion of the race, was unique.

The boats finished consecutively, having their colorful sails open, reaffirming their new rendezvous for the next Rodos Cup, in July 2020.

The Closing Ceremony took place on Friday night, during which the awards were given to the winners.
