About

Welcome

Dear Friends;

It is with great pleasure that we are hosting the 18th edition of Bosphorus Cup in Istanbul this year.

Everything started in 2002 when I envisioned a globally known sailing regatta on the waters of Istanbul.

Needless to say; sailing on the Bosphorus between two continents with the busy trafic; active currents of the Black Sea and the stunning background thanks to the unique architecture of Istanbul is very special .

It is also very tricky and challenging even for the top professional sailors of Our planet.

We hope that one day You come and enjoy the event together with Us;

In the mean time; we send You best wishes and love from the shores of the Bosphorus;

Orhan Refik Gorbon
Founder of the Bosphorus Cup Istanbul

The Perpetual Trophy

The perpetual Turkcell Platinum Bosphorus Cup Trophy was designed by Can Yalman and produced in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul in 2004. The first holder of the Trophy in 2002 was Mr. Bülent Atabay with his Dubois One Tonner Orient express III. Since then the Trophy is awarded to the overall winner of IRC classes within the Turkcell Platinum Bosphorus Cup. This elaborate trophy highlights the prestige of the race.
