In 1997 he challenged himself against the elements of nature and won, making with his windsurfing board the long distance crossing from cape Sounion down to Crete, in two days.
Back then, Nikolas Kaklamanakis wanted to try his limits and at the same time promote his homeland, the Greek tourism and the effort of Greece to claim the Olympic Games of 2004.
Fourteen years later the double Olympic medallist, rigs his windsurfing board and puts prow for one still bigger overshooting: Sail Aegean covering 320 naval miles in two days!
With ally the air and drawing energy & force by his internal need to prove that Greece always fights and overcome difficulties, the 43 y.o. champion will start from Andros -in the waters of which his father baptized baby Nikolas as a sailor – will pass in succession from Mykonos, the holy island of antiquity Delos and from Amorgos, will cross small Cyclades at Donoussa & Koufonissia and after a stop-over in Tilos, he will end up in Karpathos.
There in the blue waters of Aegean, Nikolas will give asymbolic big battle, which he considers as his debt toward Greece & Greeks, that suffocate from the economic situation and are maligned internationally.
Go for it and for us Nikola! (click to watch the short video)
