High Point YachtFest
The Annual High Point YachtFests are multinational fun sporting regattas to be held in Autumn around the Mediterranean, involving non-aggressive, non-professional sailing with the focus on the social side.
They are for people who like sailing and want to meet others from a common professional background. A year's anticipation and hopes will be crowned with a week's sailing in beautiful surroundings and with fantastic entertainment. You will make new friends and look forward to meeting up again in future years.
HPYFs take place around the Mediterranean, allowing participants to enjoy the history, culture and stunning natural environment of the region. Participants in the regatta are drawn from different professions and the regatta itself is competitively priced to allow anyone who wants to participate.
We are delighted to announce that the 8th HPYF sailing event will be held in Greece, out of Athens. We will be sailing around the Argo Saronic Gulf, taking in the best of this beautiful area. The event will be held in the week 12/09/15 - 19/09/15 starting and finishing in Alimos Marina, Athens.
We have a fleet of Bavarias available and ready for booking, size 40ft - 50ft. Please check our Boat List for HPYF 2015 - BOAT LIST.
We are looking forward to seeing you all at another fabulous event next year!

What we did in 2014:
GOCEK, TURKEY (2014)
This year, it was Welcome Back to Gocek! Our very first HPYF was held in the bay of Fethiye and we absolutely love this area. The dates were 20 - 27 September and we sailed with 10 boats in the fleet. I would like to congratulate Philip Young and his crew on a very convincing victory!
We had the most wonderful sailing week, with the best winds, a lot of sun and swimming and as always, a great company! Our annual reunion just gets better and better.
It is so heartening to see another year where over 80% of the participants are repeat ‘offenders’. This year’s newcomers were mainly sprinkled across the established crews and they added so much to our enjoyment. We spent most of the nights in the bays with some fantastic restaurants and one night in the town of Fethiye. Our Roux Gourmet night was, as usual, on Thursday and it was a roaring success! Thank you Steven for being such a wonderful DJ and thank you Nico for letting us use your beautiful Swan 53 as a steady dance floor!
We would like to congratulate Philip Young on winning HPYF 2014 and becoming the new HPYF Commodore! But this versatile crew has not only proved to be great sailors ... From Philip: You might like to see this account of our week on Blue Bay in poetic form. The Axe Lady can also wield a pen!
