For the second consecutive year, the mecca sailing destination of Paros Island in Greece is the Official Travel Destination Partner of the Fleet Racing Tour.

A magnet for windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing fans, Paros Island, located in the heart of the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea attracts sailors from all over the world to enjoy its perfect wind conditions and pristine white beaches.

By supporting the Fleet Racing Tour, Paros Island Municipality aims to extend its profile to large global audience and increase its renown by attracting even more, windsurfers, kite surfers and sailors to experience Paros as a destination that combines great training and competition, alongside memorable holidays.



Extending its partnership further, Paros Island Municipality is committed to supporting the ever growing sport of kite surfing, and will award a prize of free accommodation and travel expenses to Paros to the first 6 winners (three men and three women) of the upcoming European Kite Racing Championships 2013, which take place in Gizzeria, Italy from 24-28 July.

Maria Chanioti, President of Paros Municipality Tourism Office, commented, 'We are very excited to support the sports of kite surfing and windsurfing, as Paros is a great place to experience these water sports and every year attracts hundreds of tourists. There are many famous athletes that come to Paros for training and we also want to invite anyone whose focus is to learn to kite surf or windsurf, as our beautiful beaches offer unique and ideal conditions for the sport, whatever your level. Beyond sailing, Paros is a great place to holiday with numerous tourist attractions.'

Icarus Sailing Media, negotiated the partnership with Paros Municipality, as Panos Marinopoulos, Marketing Manager, explained, 'We are delighted that Icarus Sailing Media was the catalyst to launch this perfect sponsor partnership between sport and tourism.

By partnering with Fleet Racing Tour, Paros Island will be showcased in this TV programme which reaches millions of viewers around the world.'
