Andros Race – 52nd edition!

Athens, August 28, 2019

OPTIMUM Yacht Racing Team will participate one more time in iconic Andros Race from Thursday 29/8 to Sunday 1/9.  The Nautical Club Andros and Yacht Club Greece has worked hard to ensure another successful edition inviting great sailing teams and providing well regarded shipping companies to support them and share the unique experience this historic yacht race has to offer.  As such, SAMOS Steamship Co. stickers are already placed in our mainsail and more importantly a strong group of five SAMOS Steamship Co. associates have trained on board OPTIMUM 3 to blend with the OPTIMUM racing crew to be able to cope with the

tough conditions expected for the race.

“We are happy to welcome SAMOS Steamship Co. on board and thank them that they selected our OPTIMUM team to support this great race and its organisers.  We expect to enjoy an unparalleled hospitality and social activities program in Andros island but for now we concentrate on the final heavy weather preparations that will ensure a safe and successful first leg from Vouliagmeni to Chora, Andros, a 70 n.m., mostly upwind leg through the famous windy passage Cavo Doro straits.  The competition will be tough as always in this race and we are privileged to race next to the TP52 Team of John Coumandaros from USA.  We are looking forward to race hard and smart and share the experience with our supporters SAMOS Steamship Co.”, commented skipper and OPTIMUM team principal Periklis Livas.
