NOPT Hosts Annual Rowing Races on October 14

Rowers from clubs throughout Greece will meet on Poros on October 14 when NOPT, the Poros nautical sports club, hosts its annual rowing races in memory of former coach Petros Litsas.
The races will be held on a course to be marked along the shore stretching from the small bridge past Aspros Gatos and Villa Galini to the turn towards Mikro Neorio beach.
The club’s rowing team recently took part in the inter-club races hosted by Salamina where Aspasia Oikonomopoulou and Katerina Kontakou finished second and third, respectively, in the girls’ single sculls, the crew of Petros Haraklanis and Stavros Karitelis placed third in the boys’ double sculls, and the crew of Kyriakos Magginopoulos and Nikos Sambanis also finished third in the juveniles’ double sculls.
Meantime, 23 athletes from NOPT’s kayak team will depart on October 5 for the interclub canoe-kayak races hosted at Kournias Lake by the Souda nautical sports club.
