Finishing Strong: Agonas Eleftheria is a Resounding Success

Finishing Strong: Agonas Eleftheria is a Resounding Success

The 7th edition of the now annual Agonas Eleftheria Sailing Race (AESR) culminated on September 30, 2018 to rave reviews, deemed by both participants and attendees alike as a resounding success.

The two-day event – organised by the Limassol Nautical Club, and sponsored by Fameline Holding Group (FHG) – came to fruition over the weekend commencing September 29, and was comprised of a bounty of activities, tasked with encouraging young athletes to hone their skills and aspire to ever-betterment, and inspiring a sense of pride in belonging to the sailing community.

Net proceeds from this year’s AESR have been given to FHG’s Heri me Heri Foundation, thus enriching the race’s already humanitarian identity. Established by FHG – a multifarious conglomerate headquartered in Limassol, and composed of some 28 companies chiefly active across the maritime, industrial, and oil and gas sectors – Heri me Heri (Greek for ‘hand in hand’) aspires to support families with children under the age of 18, who are experiencing financial difficulties or suffering from health issues.

Some 70 young athletes came together to participate in this year’s B’ Optimist and B’ Laser boat races, along with more than 26 yachts that raced head to head in the offshore sailing race. The Catamaran escort tour for those wishing to stay up-close to the action proved hugely popular, with 150 friends and associates taking to the sea to witness the regatta unfold.

Meanwhile, the evening cocktail reception hosted at  Dolce Club in Limassol, and live concert featuring Greek singer Elena Paparizou, was met with great praise and excitement. Further to the crème de la crème of the shipping and maritime community of the island congregating in support of the AESR, an esteemed cohort of senior government officials also attended the evening’s festivities in lending further gravitas to an already revered event.

Sharing his thoughts, FHG founder and managing partner, Mr. Adamos Seraphides explains: “Once again, the AESR has served as a unifying event in the island’s sailing community. This is the 4th consecutive year where Fameline has been supporting the race and year after year we our feeling even louder the enthusiasm coming from the athletes and the Cyprus sailing community. That is why this year we are proud and privileged to announce a strategic collaboration between our Group and the Limassol Nautical Club. We envision to be able to grow the competence of the Club and to increase its athletes level of readiness to compete in international happenings.

Without the time and help of the event’s co-sponsors and supporters, the AESR could not have come so bountifully to fruition, and a heartfelt thank you is extended to: Cathelco, MIE Group, Bunkernet, One Net Grp, One Tech Grp, Kaeline Grp, Fameline Oil & Gas, CYTA, SKF Marine, Comtech, Turbo Belgium, SBS, Scanjet, Denjet, MBS Cargo, ARK Marine Services, BLRT Group, Azuma Engineering, Shin Shin Machinery, Exxon Mobil, Inmarsat,  eSafe Solutions, Hytera, IMS, Hatchtec, Pole Star, UMC, Halmside and Moore Stephens.
