Skippered Yacht Charter Greece

Dear Homo Sapiens, There is no need to continue reading this page. What follows is intended for search engine robots and spiders and not necessarily for human beings. Further information concerning skippered charters cruising Turkey and Greece may be obtained by clicking on the maroon links immediately above. Thank You. Are you searching for skippered charters cruising Turkey and Greece? Or for Comet 50 charter yachts sailing the eastern Mediterranean? Could you be thinking of a skippered yacht charter in Turkey aboard a Comet 50? Of a cruise through turquoise waters along the indented coast of Asia Minor? Of exploring those indentations? Of swimming in seawater surrounded by wild flowers and Calabrian pine? Of snaring a chocolate tree pod? Of snaring your own sea bass? Or are you thinking of a yacht charter in Greece? Of a cruise among remote Aegean islands? Of sailing an azure sea in a fast sloop-rigged sailing yacht aesthetically pleasing to the eye? Of parking stern to a seaside promenade? Of snatching your own octopus from the sea? Of the taste of octopus grilled? Of the tang in a good garlic salad? Or all of the above? Might you also be thinking of a cruise through history? Of a cruise at the crossroads of corsair history? Of sailing the wakes of famous sea captains like the Barbarossa brothers and Dragut and the several Murats Reis? All of these corsair privateers sailed under letters of marque issued by the Ottoman Turkish and Mameluk Egyptian administrations, their ships initially galliots with a single lateen-rigged mast and 18 to 22 banks of oars, their purpose to disrupt Latin shipping in the Aegean and elsewhere, to make life for Latins ashore something of a trial, and to improve their own circumstances at the same time. Eventually most also sailed with Ottoman commissions in Ottoman naval service aboard large lantern, or command, two-masted galleys of 150-feet with almost as many oarsmen. One of the more notable Murats Reis, or Murats Captain, is said to have himself been Latin by birth, a Sardinian kidnapped in 1546 as a youngster and made the protege of his Muslim kidnapper. He gained fame and prizes by the ruse of dropping the masts of his galliots and hiding their hulls one behind the other so as not to appear threatening until too late. By 1565 he was in Ottoman service under Dragut at the siege of Malta, and in 1571 he served under Uluj Ali at the Battle of Lepanto. In 1578 he captured the Spanish viceroy of Sicily, and two years later the Papal flagship fell into his hands. That year he Skippered Charters Turkeytook prizes carrying more than a million ducats in gold coin. In 1586 he ventured outside the Mediterranean to sack one of Spain's Canary Islands. In what may have been his final entry in the pages of history, his may have been one of 50-odd Ottoman galleys commanded by Halil Pasha which off Cyprus in 1609 took three galleons (depicted at left) flying Hospitaller colors, including the 80-gun Red Galleon commanded by the French Hospitaller de Fressinet but the property of Grand Master Alof de Wignacourt. We say may have been because Ottoman Turkey was so full of Murats Reis that the pages of history are understandably confused. The 1609 episode may have involved Murat of Sardinia or Murat of Qatif (Arabia) or one of two Murats uncle and nephew, or even one of the many other Murats. Would you like to sail in the wake of these many Murats Reis? Would you like to call in at their ports and back-bays, enjoying the clean air and clear seawater which furthered their longevity? Along the coast of Turkey? Among Aegean islands of Greece? While you holiday? While you holiday with friends aboard a skippered charter yacht proceeding leisurely from one intriguing locale to another? Starting in Bodrum? Or Gocek? Are you searching for Gocek in Turkey? Well, Gocek is proximate to the international airport at Dalaman (DLM) and 42 nautical miles ENE of Rhodes Town. There or elsewhere we can put you aboard a skippered charter yacht for a cruise not to be forgotten. We can put you aboard a charter yacht with captain and show you the flat sailing waters of the Gulf of Gocek, show you Murat of Sardinia's path down the coast of Lycia, show you his route up the coast of neighboring Caria and among Greek islands.
