All yachts must race with their standard charter sails provided by Kavas Yachting sail inventory. Spinnakers and spinnaker poles are not allowed in the Acropolis Regatta.
During the race all boats must have their anchors stored in their anchor lockers. Failing to comply with this instruction may result in disqualification of the boat.
Please take care of your sails. If the wind is strong please remember to reef early, in accordance with good seamanship in the prevailing conditions. Although we are able to repair minor sail damages, such as re-stitching split seams, we have no facilities during the event to repair more serious damage than this. Sails damaged beyond repair during the event will not be replaced, so please bear this in mind and race within the capabilities of your yacht’ s rig. Please do not carry full sail in strong winds!
