A large number of tourist boats participating in the regatta “The Big Force of the Wind” arrived in the port of Sami this afternoon.
The regatta is organized by the Russian company “Silavetra”, which in addition to trips to destinations around the world, also has a school for those who want to learn the secrets of sailing.
The event started on the 22nd of the month starting from the marina of Lefkada and the first stop Vathi of Ithaca. Then the boats went to the cosmopolitan Fiskardo and today, the fourth day, they arrived in Sami where tourist buses transported passengers and crews to points of interest in Cephalonia. Tomorrow the boats will go to Sivota, on Thursday to the beautiful island of Kalamos, while on Friday the return of the boats to Lefkada is planned and the completion of this… sea voyage.
This Russian event, with its large participation, proves the enormous potential that maritime tourism has both in our Municipality and in Cephalonia in general. Of course, it is enough to deal seriously with this dynamic tourism sector and to develop the infrastructure, but also the services provided. And this can be achieved only through the cooperation of the Municipality with the professionals of our place.
