The 26th Engineering Challenge Cup (ECC) will be held in Athens, Greece, 4 – 11 May 2019!

For the annual ECC event, this means going back to beautiful Greece after 12 years. We are excited about taking the regatta to one of the most beautiful sailing areas of the Mediterranean.

I would like to thank the new Commodore, Martin Fordham and his team for choosing us to be their partners in the organisation of the next ECC event.

There will be up to 50 boats competing with a support fleet of four boats. We teamed up with the charter companies to secure the boats and to provide a superb service. International Race Officer, Vassilis Kaskouras will be in charge of the racing organization. Yacht Club of Greece will be our local support with the Sailing Federation.

The fleet will be sailing in the Saronic Gulf.
