The love of the Corfiots for the sea is known since the ancient years. From the historical period and the tradition their naval skills came to light. The emblem of Corfu and the Region of the Ionian Islands shows that Corfu and Sea go together.

Since 1902 Filathlitikos Corfu Club, which in 1935 was renamed to NAOK, activated actions which connect people with the sea. Today the club is operating in the fields of sailing, rowing, swimming, water polo, spearfishing and special activities. Inspires and motivates every day more than 300 young athletes, 900 members and  thousands of friends.
