Bad weather Cancelled Sailing Marathon

Greece’s second Sailing Marathon was canceled on Friday after warnings of severe weather due to a tropical-style cyclone that swept into the country’s south.

“We sailors are familiar with unpredictable weather; it is a large part of the magic of our sport… the weather always has the final say,” the organizers of the annual event noted, adding that it has been postponed until November 3.

The Sailing Marathon, held by the Yacht Club of Greece, was due to take place on Saturday off the coast of Piraeus.
