The 53rd Aegean Rally set sail on Satur­day from Faliro Bay on Athens’s south­ern coast. Eighteen ves­sels are tak­ing part in the 350 nau­ti­cal mile race to the is­lands of Pat­mos and Mi­los, head­ing back on July 24 to cross the fin­ish line at Sounio. ‘Sail­ing has brought a lot of dis­tinc­tions to our coun­try and I be­lieve it will con­tinue its gilded course in Rio,’ the pres­i­dent of the Greek Olympic Com­mit­tee, Spy­ros Kapra­los, said at the launch of the event, re­fer­ring to the Olympic Games in Brazil.
