A great chance for Cyprus to join the world sailing map

At the beginning of April we had the chance to meet a great personality of medicine, Professor Ioannis Pallikaris, Rector of the University of Crete and Professor of Ofthalmology. Professor Pallikaris and his wife Mrs Varvara Pallikari are devoted fans of sailing. Professor Pallikaris has discovered the technique for the correction of myopia using laser, along with other significant achievements that distinguish him within the global medical community.

In the margins of the ceremony of twinning between Limassol Hospital and University Hospital of Heraklion, we had a very interesting discussion on developing cooperation with the University of Crete in matters and actions regarding the great love we share for the sea and sailing.

The University of Crete also supports cultural affairs. Odyssail Regatta (from Odysseus and sailing) is held by the University of Crete every two years and is considered a great sporting and cultural event.

It is a concept showing the role of the sea in the evolution of Greek culture; a culture that has from the very beginning been, and still is, closely related to the Greeks’ long maritime tradition.

During past Odyssail events, local nautical clubs in every country organised the boats’ arrival at and departure from every port. Alongside these events, local municipal authorities held cultural events and other festivities in cooperation with the Odyssail organisational committee.

This year our aim is to create conditions for Cyprus to participate in this very interesting activity. In the future, Odyssail could use our island as the finish line and have boats from all over the Mediterranean finishing the race here.

We should mention that many of the crews and boats expenses are financed by the programme.
