The Festival is a great opportunity to experience the charm and hospitality of Vassiliki village and Lefkas island and to appreciate the stunning natural beauty of the area. If you plan to have your bareboat charter in Greece in June or July during the festival you can plan your days around which events you want to see. Everyone is welcome to the events which are all free of charge.

During your bareboat yacht charter some of the amazing events include windsurf tricks in the EFPTA European Freestyle Windsurfing Championship, the Greek National Catamaran Cup, Catamaran GPS Speed competition, Windsurf Speed competition, Windsurf Slalom race, Mountain Bike race and a yacht race around one of the nearby islands of Arkoudi.
