The DBI Worldwide Yachting Ocean Cruising Club, (DBIOCC), Began in 2000 and offers people the opportunity to enjoy the experience of sailing in our annual Blue Water regatta, which takes place in Greece in the month of May each year. We change the venue and sailing location regularly to add to the enjoyment and experience of sailing in Greece.
The whole event takes place over one week and includes 3 days of races around the islands and 3 days of fun cruising and beach parties. You can join the whole week event or just the 3 days regatta, the choice is yours.
