The Republic of Turkey is truly at a crossroads of history, culture, geography and religion. This vast peninsula is surrounded on three sides by water, and links Asia and Europe. With more than 4,400 miles of coastline, it is no wonder Turkey is a sailor’s paradise.Read more
Chains of rugged mountains frame a central plateau. Because of its geography, Turkey features a wide range of climate variation. As a result of this diversity, the variety of animal and plant life in Turkey is some of the richest found in Europe and the Middle East. The coast makes for prime sailing, with mostly calm waters and kind winds.
Turkey’s culture and history is as ancient and diverse as its geography and climate.“The Odyssey” is set in Turkey, and the Trojan wars were fought there. Constantine established Constantinople, which is now Istanbul, as a center for Eastern Christians. When Rome fell, Constantinople became the center of the Byzantine Empire. After the fall of the Byzantine Empire, Seljuk Turks ruled for nearly 200 years until Mongols invaded. A small group of Seljuks rose to power again, and created the Ottoman Empire, which lasted into the early 20th Century. It was swept away at the end of World War I, and modern Turkey was born in 1922.

Seasons: April – November
Winds: The normal wind in the sailing holiday season is the meltemi, which blows from the NW – WNW in open waters, but nearer to shore follows the coastlines. Occasionally, in the high season gusts can reach above 6-7 Bft. Outside the season the meltemi is less powerful and even several days of light winds could be expected. Usually the wind will pick up early in the afternoon, which is ideal for anchoring. Yet, there is the possibility that the meltemi doesn’t die at the end of the day and continues during the night.
