IOANNIDEIA 2017

As you all know by now, Ioannideia is an event established by Famagusta Nautical Club in the memory of Our Vice President, and after death Honorary President, Commodore of the Cyprus Navy, Andrea Ioannide. 
The Event takes place in Limassol, in front of our Club, although some social events take place to the premises of our Partner, Limassol Marina.  The Event started out with one Offshore race back in 2013 with ceremonies at our Club, including formal dinner, cocktail, musicians and a concept related to the tragic event of Mari. 
In 2016, and due to our previous success, Ioannideia moved to another level.  It took place between August 31st and September 11th.  It started with the Ioannideia International Optimist Regatta (31st of August to 4th of September), followed by three (3) races of the International Offshore Regatta with the Trophy Race on Sunday the 11th, and in between Swimming, Rowing, and Canoeing/Kayaking Open Sea Marathons which started from Limassol Marina and finished at the Club.
For the next two years, Ioannideia will move to the top of the Sailing World.  After a successful bid, the Famagusta Nautical Club will organize the 2018 IODA World Championship (the biggest sailing class for children under 15 years old) during August 27th 2018 and September 6th 2018.  For this reason, Ioannideia 2017 would become the Optimist Mediterranean Championship and be the Official Test Event for the 2018 World Championship.  The 2017 Optimist Event will take place between August 30th 2017 and September 3rd 2017. 
The International Offshore Regatta that took place in 2016 was the biggest (with almost fifty (50) participants from 8 countries) ever in Cyprus, so far.  After the recognition in 2016 by the Offshore Racing Congress (ORC) to adopt our Event and create the ORC Challenge Trophy, and after the previous years of success, our Club decided to place a bid for the European ORC Championship in 2018, with successful results.  The Famagusta Nautical Club would be the Organizer of the 2018 ORC European Championship, following the IODA World Championship.  The 2017 Offshore Challenge Trophy Mare Nostrum Event will take place between September 8th 2017 and September 10th 2017.
Both, the IODA 2018 World Championship and the 2018 ORC European Championship will be placed under the general umbrella of IOANNIDEIA and would make our 2017 Event as the Official Test Event a year prior of the big Sailing Celebration of 2018.  From 2017 to the main Event of 2018 we will also organize another 3 to 4 Camps or Test Events.
We expect to have 250 – 300 children participating at the Worlds and possibly 200 children competing at this year’s test event taking under consideration that each country participates with a team of 5 children. All teams are accompanied by a coach, team leader and a country representative that participates to the Annual Assembly Meeting of the World Federation which will also be hosted by our Club.  For the Optimist World, families of the participants could also take advantage of the occasion and combine their vacation with the event.
For the Offshore European, we anticipate more than 50 Teams from around the World with an estimated number of Crews to exceed 500 people.  A lot of them could make the trip with their families combining as well their summer vacations.
Our partnership with Limassol Marina for the Offshore Regatta has duration for ten (10) years providing its facilities free for the participants, for ten (10) days.  New Blue also has a contract with us for the next five (5) years, in providing new boats for the event.  Besides Limassol Marina and our partnership, Moscow Building Service is our Sports Co-Organizer, and of course our new partner and official airliner for our events, Aegean.  The latest key player to be added in this gigantic cooperation is ofcourse Cyprus Tourism Organization (CTO).  RIK is, for a fifth year in a row, the Communication Sponsor of the Event.
Both Main Events are listed under the Worldwide calendars of the International Federations (IODA and ORC respectively).  The Event has always been under the congregation of the President of Cyprus, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades.
All proceeds of the Events go to the Andreas Ioannides Scholarship Foundation for Athletes that are in College with financial needs.
All details regarding the previous Events, as well as the news for this year’s Event can be found on our website www.famagustanauticalclub.com under the menu “Ioannideia”.
IOANNIDEIA is heading to be the biggest Sailing Event in Cyprus.
All needed documents regarding this year’s event, as well as the Notice of Races are now available to you on our website. 
We are hoping this year to organize the biggest water sport event counting on your participation and support.

IOANNIDEIA 2014

 

The Famagusta Nautical Club (NOA) organizes for a second consecutive year, the biggest Offshore Sailing Event on the Island.  “Ioannideia” will take place in memory of our Vice President of the Club that sacrificed himself during the explosion at Mari Naval Base, where he was serving, on July 11th 2011.

“Ioannideia” has currently been established as the biggest annual Offshore Sailing Event organized by Famagusta Nautical Club.  Our Club, in cooperation with the newly built Limassol Marina, performs all water-sports events sponsored by IronFX, at the area in front of our Club in Limassol.  Limassol Marina provides free mooring for all participant yachts.  This year's event will be under the congregation of the President of Cyprus, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades.

The main event will be the International Offshore Sailing Race which last year had a big success with 35 yachts participating from neighboring countries.  This year all social events will commemorate the 40 years of Famagusta’s occupation, as well as the memory of the Minister of defense, Tassos Mitsopoulos, who last year put the entire event under his congregation.   In addition, in this years event the Famagusta Nautical Club will provide partial scholarships to athletes of the Club with financial aid from the “Andreas Ioannides Scholarship Fund” that was established last year.

Our last year's success of “Ioannideia” gives us the courage to kindly ask you for this years participation, in order to continue the success of the event, keep funding the Andreas Ioannides Scholarship Fund and keep in our memories the Heroic actions of the Admiral Andreas Ioannides.
