BOSPHORUS CUP

Dear Friends;

After sailing at a very competitive level at various international events, I have decided to host a similar event on the magical waters of Istanbul.
It was in 2002 when we created Our brand name ‘’Bosphorus Cup’’ and started as a one day event on the Bosphorus with a superb prize giving ceremony at Reina Club of Istanbul.
Since then Our event grew each year, slowly but surely. Today, we are very proud to own one of the top events of the world and surely the most exciting one of Our region.

Needless to say; sailing on the Bosphorus between two continents (Europe and Asia) with the busy trafic; active currents of the Black Sea and the stunning background is very special .
It is also very tricky and challenging even for the top professional sailors of Our planet. During the past 21 years, we have managed to put together a super competitive event. It is not easy to win the Bosphorus Cup and lift the custom made perpetual trophy.

The most successful sailor so far is ”Levent Peynirci” and the most successful design is the one of ”Farr 40’’.
Yet many competitive sailors from all over the world come and compete to win the trophy.
Lots of social events and parties create a stunning atmosphere during the for day event.

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;

FOUNDER OF THE BOSPHORUS CUP ISTANBUL

The Perpetual Trophy

The perpetual 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 Bosphorus Cup. This elaborate trophy highlights the prestige of the race.
