Pilgrim cruises are a good annual tradition at Running on Waves.
The most remarkable event in the history of pilgrim endeavours of Running on Waves was when an icon, painted by an outstanding Russian traveler, champion of faith and painter Fedor Konyukhov, was delivered as a gift to Vatopedi monastery at St. Mount Athos.
Other pilgrim cruises were dedicated to sacred places of ancient Byzantium, Patmos, Corfu, Bari, Agia Saranda, Cephalonia, Aegina.
The Sailing Cruise on Easter 2016 was conceived to praise St.Nicholas by visiting places, connected to his life and afterlife. Easter solemn celebration was held at Kos island. Part of proceeds was reserved for charity purposes.
