After last year's success, the "2nd INTERNATIONAL
YACHTING SYMPOSIUM 2003" will take place on the island
of POROS located near Athens, Greece, beginning the
11-15th of May 2003. The organizing committee has chosen
the beautiful island of POROS to offer more value-added via

is a charming island with a natural harbor inclusive of yachting
infrastructure located forty-five minutes by sea from Piraeus.

infrastructure and fine Greek Cuisine & Wine within the
