On behalf of the board members, I would like to welcome you to the official website of the Famagusta Nautical Club.
The most historic Nautical Club of the island of Cyprus was founded in 1960 in the occupied, since 1974, city of Famagusta. Originally located at the JerryIsland in Famagusta, the Club played an important role in the development of water sports in Cyprus. The Clubs’ history is marked with great athletic achievements, as well as, with a rich social and cultural contribution in Cyprus.
Our Club, since its inception plays a historic and major role in the development of sailing, swimming, canoe/kayak, rowing, triathlon, water polo, power boats and offshore sailingactivities. Our Club is a founding member of all the above mentioned water sport Associations and it is actively participating in all operations. Our Club has been a leader in all water sports categories by competing with great success in all National Championships and with our athletes holding numerous National records.
We have ranked in the first place, as a champion Club, in all sports categories forconsecutive years. Our longest winning streakcomes in swimming where our Club has been the Champion for the past consecutive 19 years. Due to our Club’s success, we have managed to gain the respect and built relationships with all Nautical Clubs in Cyprus, as well as, with our neighboring countries of Greece, Middle East and to a great extend with the global Sporting Society.
After the tragic events of 1974 and the Turkish invasion that saw our beloved hometown of Famagusta occupied, our Club has temporarily relocated in Limassol where it has once again thrived and prospered and it is a landmark point in Limassol. At our modern and newly renovated areas, we offer our members and visitors comfort, relaxation and total satisfaction throughoutthe day and night. In our efforts tokeep our members active, we organize a variety of social and sports events both ashore and offshore and we try to get as many of our members involved, as possible.
We organize events such as reunions, speeches, beach parties, fishing competitions and regattas, to name a few. Last but not least I would like to thank you for taking the time tovisit our website and I personally invite you to visit the Club and experience the ambience ofthis historic and truly remarkable Nautical Club and why not, even become a member! We are looking forward to welcoming you in joining our big family of members.
