Already a familiar face around Limassol Marina, is a Cypriot yachtsman and professional sailor with multiple accolades in international sailing at championship level and over 40,000 NM as a skipper. His dream is ambitious but already on the road to realisation through sheer determination and an untamed passion for the sea dedicated to sailing as fast and as hard he can.. Bringing a local crew together to form the Nireas Sailing Team, he has already identified young and talented sailors based in Cyprus, most with routes in Limassol, to join him in the upcoming training schedule . In 2014 the team aims to be competing with hand-picked sponsors and capitalising on major Mediterranean and European campaigns.
