Offshore racing for all Yacht Owners and Charterers !
The long-distance regatta 'The Race', launched by the Austrian Pitter Yachtcharter, will be started on October 17 2015 in Biograd (Croatia), leading in a first leg over 500 miles to Lefkas (Greece), followed by a second leg back to Biograd. The stopover in Greece is not only very relaxing and entertaining, but allows at the same time to change up to half of the crew. The logistics of this race are not simple, and Pitter is therefore partnering with the Lefkas based IYC (Ionic Yacht Charter) taking over race management in Greece and supporting the teams during their stop. IYC, a German-Greek family affair, has been the charter pioneer on the Ionic Sea since 1979, and is a long-time base for the Mediterranean Cruising Section of the Deutsche Segler Verband. The Bavaria dealer Yacht Meltl has a support base at IYC as well and is ready to give a special assistance to Bavaria owners and charterers. The third partner to be mentioned is the German Insurance Agency Yachtpool, the prime sponsor of 'The Race', specialised in Yacht- and Charter insurance matters, jointly cooperation with Pitter for a long time.
