25 JULY 2017 / The SNF Supports the 2017 420 Open European Championship

The 420 Open European Championship for Men and Women, held this year in Athens and overseen by the Nautical Club of Tzitzifies-Kallithea, is just a few days away. The race will take place from Saturday July 22nd until Sunday July 30th.

The race, made possible through the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), has grown to become an important sporting event, attracting crews from across the world. This year the 2017 420 Open European Championship is held at the Olympic premises, along the Faliro bay area, while the opening ceremony, along with the parade of the sailing teams participating in the race, took place at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC).

Since 1958, the Nautical Club of Tzitzifies-Kallithea has been developing activities in the fields of triangle and open sea sailing, as well as kanoe-kayak, counting, so far, many accomplishments in European and international sailing events.
