If you want to discover the pleasure and enjoyment of a sailing holiday,
and if you want to learn about sailing, it´s pleasures and skills plusa
share our "Sailing Holiday Philosophy": welcome on board!
For me, sailing means enjoying the silence that only a sailboat can offer:
gentle hush of the waves, with white sails blowing in the wind
and the beauty and seclusion of the bay you have chosen,
where you may enjoy crystal-clear waters as long as you like,
until we decide to head for the next bay or island nearby...
NOT to expect:
Action, action, action,
while continuously and hectically aiming toward our next, next, next
destination... no,thank you!
try to keep our sailing trips on SY Flexen
avoid northwesterly courses trough the Aegean sea in Summer,
e.g. we don´t sail (fight...) from Mykonos to Athens.
you are looking for such a sportive trip, I can try to find
a crew for you, or one that you can join.
Otherwise you can
charter a boat inclusive "sportive" positioned
skipper yourself from our databased yachtcharter
tranquility certainly doesn't keep us from sailing!
We just try to plan itinaries and courses that are "stomach-friendly"...
season has it´s sailing area, and we try to follow
the most pleasant weather conditions
springtime and early autumn the weather is lovely in the
south (Kekova, Kas, Kalkan to Kemer and Antalya) , but
it´s too hot in the south of Marmaris on the turkish
coast from mid-July and August to mid-September!
that is holiday season in Turkey and all over Europe -
so the Turkish bays are very crowded then! We try
to avoid the crowds in August by sailing to the greek
islands in the Aegean sea.
2004 we visited Crete, and it was a great pleasure to
enjoy the hospitalyty and friendlyness of the cretan people
- even, if the island has a very good touristical infrastructure,
the nautical infrastructure is not developed yet, and
so it is a great experience to sail there. In 2007, the
first 2 weeks sailing in Mai will lead us to Crete again,
then around the island and in June, the way back along
Peleponnese peninsula bays, via central cyclades back
to Kos, from where we probably will sail along the turkish
coast until middle of July. We do not have a fixed schedule,
as we are no "bus" travelling the same rout
again and again, but greek ferries and turkish airports
are easy to reach, so it´s never a problem to arrange
returns on time.
sailors avoid the central Aegean seas around Naxos, Mykonos, Paros
and Santorini in the Summer season because of the "horrifiying" Meltemi
wind which can be very (and I mean very!) strong. On the wrong course
(S>>N/NW), it´s a dangerous "fight" upwind, but we have
been sailing there in August for years without any problems!
we go to the aegaean cycladic islands, we sail from NE to SW and back
from SE to NE, which allows us fast sailing without big troubles even
at stronger winds!
(But no "Mykonos-Athens", as you already know ;-) )
you see, we try to get the best out of all the fantastic opportunities
the Turkish coastline and the greek aegaean sea can offer from April
till November, and in the overcrowded and hot high-sum season we head
for the Cycladic islands, which are always a bit windy and not
so very full of people!
