The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) welcomes the Hellenic Radio Sailing Division by conducting races for Marblehead class Sailing boats on the SNFCC Canal in December.
On Sunday, December 12 The public will have the opportunity to watch a real miniature sailing boat race, with vessels constructed by sailboat modelists.
The Canal will be transformed for a few hours into a small ocean of miniature sailboats. Remote-Controlled Sailing, or Radio Sailing, features all the characteristics of dinghy sailing with the essential difference that the skippers are not on board, rather they steer the vessels from a distance using a remote control.
The Marblehead class is recognized by World Sailing, the international sailing federation. The boats have overall length 1.3 meters and a maximum height up to 3 meters from the bottom of the keel to the top of the mast. They exclusively use wind for their propulsion, are made by high-tech materials and, following the latest trends in shipbuilding design, are considered the most exciting class for fans of the genre.
