2 May 2024 • Written by Lucy Dunn

We are delighted to announce our partnership with the inaugural Cyclades Cup, Antiparos, scheduled to take place from 14 to 16 June 2024 on the picturesque island of Antiparos, Greece.

The regatta is organised by the Yacht Club of Greece in collaboration with World Superyacht Awards judge and owner of the 50-metre Almyra II, Ilia Rigas. Cyclades Cup - Antiparos is an officially sanctioned event of the SuperYacht Racing Association.

The event will welcome sailing yachts over 30 metres to participate in two days of Corinthian Class superyacht racing. An impressive number of yachts have already expressed interest in participating, including the  34-metre Barong D,  33-metre WinWin, 45-metre FIVEA, 43-metre La Belle, 42-metre Sea Biscuit and the 50-metre Almyra II.


The aim of the Cyclades Cup, Antiparos is for superyacht owners to experience the thrill of racing one of the world's most spectacular uncharted race courses.

But it will go beyond just a simple sailing weekend in the South Aegean. Offering a chance for owners, guests, captains and crew to come together to celebrate a shared love of boats, the Cup will extend an invite to all motor yachts over 30 metres to gather and enjoy a packed social programme including sunset cocktails, dinners and sightseeing.

The evening will begin with sunset cocktails overlooking the picture-postcard Livadia Beach, followed by dinner at the Rooster Farm Restaurant where guests will be able to enjoy the finest Greek cuisine cooked from fruits and vegetables handpicked from their traditional bostani (private garden).
