ANY LOCATION FOR THIS TYPE OF HOLIDAY CAN BE ARRANGED SUBJECT TO YACHT AVAILABILITY AND THE TIME OF YEAR - WE ARE OPEN TO ALL SUGGESTIONS AND WILL COME UP WITH A SAILING PACKAGE TO SUIT THE NEEDS OF YOUR GROUP.
HOWEVER HERE IS SAMPLE SAILING HOLIDAY SUGGESTION IN TURKEY FOR YOU TO CONSIDER.
How about enjoying exploringTurkey's stunning Turquoise coast under sail, we will be visiting secluded coves and anchorages, with optional onshore Yoga classes and hands-on sailing experience under the guidance of my husband Dom, who is an experienced RYA qualified Yachtmaster with experience of teaching novice sailors and leading groups on sailing holidays.
We will be able to spend our evenings in different ports and anchorages along this beautiful coastline. After a night on board, either tucked up in one of the yacht's cabins or, if you prefer, sleeping out on deck, with nothing between you and the stars, we go ashore for an optional morning Yoga session.
This will be followed by breakfast back on board where a Turkish style breakfast will be served with fruit, cheese, olives, honey, yoghurt, coffee, juice etc. We will take advantage of the afternoon sea breezes to sail to our next destination. There will also be time during each day to explore, relax, swim and sunbathe.
When we are under sail, Dom is there to offer guidance on all aspects of sailing, from learning how to take the helm, to sail trimming and basic navigation. We want our guests to be sailing the boat in a real hands-on way, so everyone from beginners, budding sailors or even experienced mariners are welcome to join us on this holiday. Of course, should you wish others to do the work, there is plenty of room for you to just sit back, relax and watch the water creaming past our bows as we make our passage through the blue Mediterranean waters.
Once anchored, we shall have a the opportunity to explore, practice meditation or guided relaxation before eating ashore in a local restaurant each evening.
The yacht is a modern, well maintained and fully equipped with all of the latest navigation and safety equipment, she has a swimming platform, showers both in the cabins as well as outside and a dinghy to take passengers ashore. There is a galley with plenty of refrigeration to keep drinks cool and the comfortable cabins have plenty of storage space.
We can be flexible about where we embark on our journey but we recommend leaving from the port of Gocek which is situated on Turkey's famous Turquoise Coast and is the perfect vantage point to visit this magical scenic coastline of mountains, sandy coves and islands. The ports of Fethiye with is bustling markets and the tourist resort of OluDeniz are close by as is the Dalyan Delta with its famous turtle beach, historic Lycian tombs and Roman ruins. This location gives us a truly idyllic retreat feel to our sailing and yoga holiday and guests on board will be able to make their time here as active or as restful as they choose.
The nearest airport to Gocek is Dalaman which is about a 40 minute drive away, while Antalya is about 4 hours drive and there is an intercity bus terminal in Fethiye. There are chartered and scheduled flights to Dalaman airport including BA, Easy Jet, Thompson and Monarch.
