Homer’s poem “Odyssey” is set in Turkey and the infamous Trojan wars were fought there. The capital was known as Byzantium by early Greek settlers before it become part of the Roman Empire and renamed Constantinople after Constantine the Great. When Rome fell, Constantinople became the center of the Byzantine Empire before the Seljuk Turks ruled for nearly 200 years. After the Mongols invaded and the Ottoman Empire was swept away at the end of World War I, modern Turkey was born in 1922. The Bosphorus separates the European part of Turkey from the Asian region and its geography means the country has a rich biodiversity with hundreds of parks and protected areas. The coastal areas are a prime sailing region with a Mediterranean climate and hot, dry summers, as well as calm waters and kind winds. When it comes to mooring fees in Turkey, many bays have restaurants and a jetty. You can moor here free of charge, although you will be expected to buy a meal from the nearby restaurant, which may be a more expensive than restaurants without a jetty. If you find a sheltered cove, you may struggle to drop anchor as many are very deep. For conservation reasons, mooring using trees is not encouraged although many coves have mooring bollards or rocks with rings in which you can use instead. Weather Watch Turkey has a long sailing season between April and November. Temperatures in Turkey around the Aegean area are around 86ºF/30ºC in summer and 77ºF/25ºC in spring and fall. The sailing conditions in Turkey are characterized by the meltemi wind, which blows from the NW to WNW in open waters, but follows the coastlines nearer to shore. Average wind speed is Force 2-4 in the summer season but occasionally, in the high season, gusts can reach above Force 6-7. Outside the season, the meltemi is less powerful with even several days of light winds can be expected. Usually the wind will pick up early in the afternoon, which is ideal for anchoring, although sometimes the meltemi continues during the night. Inspirational Itineraries • Day 1: Make sure you leave enough time to explore ashore at Göcek, a small fishing town that used to known as Kalimce.

Head eight nautical miles to Kapi Creek, Gobun Koyu, in the Skopea Limani gulf between Göcek and Fethiye – known as one of Turkey’s most beautiful cruising regions.

There are impressive views at the top, but wear sturdy shoes and take plenty of sunscreen and water with you. The ruined arches provide natural frames for views of electric blue seas sparkling in the sunshine. This is a popular spot, so early mooring is advisable and if you want to swim off the beach, wear water shoes as there are rocks underwater. • Day 4: Sail 13nm to Kizikuyruk Koyu on the Kapıdağ peninsula, a deep anchorage and beautiful cove with clear water for snorkeling. • Day 5: Make for Fethiye (13nm), which is a wonderful gateway to explore Turkey’s rich archaeological treasures and the Antalya ruins with their rock tombs that formed part of Lycia’s ancient settlements. There are plenty of mooring opportunities and some hotels reduce the mooring fee if you dine. Just a 20 minute walk away from the harbor is the Amyntas rock tombs. If you have more time, the amazing, well-preserved settlement of Pinara is just an hour by taxi, followed by a winding walk up the hill. It sits in the mountains with tombs cut into high rocks, many with columns and motifs, or you can wander the amphitheater. Some of the site requires climbing, so wear the right footwear for scrambling.Or you can visit the Tlos ruins with its amphitheater, roman baths and mausoleum cuts into the rocks.
