For this 15th edition, the organizers and their main sponsor, Turkcell decided to invite Hydros to promote energy efficiency. Our hydrofoil catamaran, the Hydros.ch, will put up a show by navigating around the competition set as a demonstration for the public.

 

The Bosphorus Cup is a major sporting event in Istanbul. This year’s edition will take place from 26 to 29 May 2016. Participants will come from Turkey, France, Bulgaria, Greece, Russia and Italy.
