After putting our sailing plans on hold for the last two years, in 2022 we’re excited to finally be heading off to Turkey on a sailing adventure exploring the beautiful Turquoise Coast, renowned as one of the most spectacular sailing spots in Europe.
Remarkably underdeveloped, the area is noted for its fine beaches, stunning scenery and an abundance of islands, offering a wonderfully diverse Mediterranean paradise. Unspoilt coves and inlets with clear turquoise water, idyllic harbours and a fantastic tapestry of culture and history are just waiting to be explored.
Many of the most attractive bays and islands are still inaccessible to vehicular traffic, which will ensure a truly unique sailing holiday experience. We won’t go hungry though as a number of Turkish restaurants can be found tucked away in many of the scenic bays, offering typical Turkish cuisine served as it would have been centuries ago. Throw in a bit of adventure, loggerhead turtles, cheap shopping, not forgetting the friendly welcoming locals and wonderful Mediterranean climate, we won't want to leave!
Crewing the yachts ourselves, there will be plenty of opportunity to improve your sailing skills or indeed learn new sailing skills for the first time and also to swim and snorkel in turquoise waters and to explore all that this beautiful region and its coastline has to offer.
We’ve managed to secure four larger and very beautiful sailing yachts each to allow for a more comfortable sailing experience. These will not be at full capacity so there will be plenty of space!
Some evenings we will moor in picturesque fishing harbours and ports and have dinner ashore, whilst others we may eat on board whilst at anchor in an idyllic bay ...... everyone is expected to muck into the chores of the boat in some way whether it’s crewing the yachts, cooking, or making the G&Ts!
This is a great opportunity to learn some new or improve on your sailing skills. No experience is necessary so complete novices are very welcome as well as experienced sailors.
There are only 29 spaces places available so reserve yours now to avoid disappointment. The last trip of this kind sold out in 2 weeks! (Note the places for 2022 will initially be offered to those who were signed up for this trip in 2021 and after a week, any remaining places will then be offered to other members)
