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 gulets cruising the Turkish and Greek Aegean may be obtained by clicking on the maroon links immediately above. Thank You. What search words have you just used? Charter cruising Turkey? Or cruising the Greek Aegean? If either or something similar, you must be searching for a charter cruise in Turkey or Greece. Perhaps for a charter cruise on a gulet such as Kaptan Kadir. If neither, you have found Kaptan Kadir anyway. Take a look; see if you like the cut of her jib. Which country is it? Greece or Turkey? Are you dreaming of a Blue Cruise between remote Greek islands in hot pursuit of the perfect grilled octopus? Or in hot pursuit of nothing at all? Or are you considering a charter cruise along the Turquoise Coast of Turkey? Contemplating a swim in crystal-clear seawater at the foot of steep slopes covered in pine? Or could you even be hoping to charter a gulet to do both the Turkish and Greek Aegean at once? How about doing one or both aboard a crewed charter gulet with spacious iroko decks and luxurious accommodations for six couples. A schooner-rigged pilot-house gulet on which to cruise the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts of Turkey or on Cruising Greek Aegeanwhich to sail among neighboring Dodecanese and Cyclades islands of Greece. Or both. While you holiday. While you have a family-and-friends holiday combining sun, fun, and history. Perhaps cruising the tracks of galleys flying the colors of the Hospitaller Knights of Rhodes (formally, the Hospitaller Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem). Or maybe cruising the tracks of Knight prey such as Zoppo the Peg Leg. While you have a group holiday aboard a schooner-rigged gulet proceeding leisurely from one historically fascinating locale to another. While you charter a pilot-house schooner to cruise further into the Aegean. Into the Greek Cyclades. As did Zoppo, also known as Acsac Reis (Acsac Kaptan). Have you previously heard of Zoppo? Zoppo was born to Greek parents living on the Venetian island of Candia (Crete) in the last quarter of the fifteenth century, and like many of his Orthodox contemporaries was raised to despise his Latin overlords. Fishing from Candia Town (Iraklion) as a youngster, he quickly learned the ways of the sea. And he quickly learned to fish for larger catch along Latin sea lanes leading from Candia to Venice. It was while fleeing a Hospitaller galley in 1523 that he lost a leg above the knee, a traumatizing development said to have sidelined him only briefly but to have greatly increased his ferocity. Commanding a brigantine (small galliot) at the time he for the next several years continued to raid Aegean shipping while dodging war galleys of the Serene Republic as well as those of the Hospitallers who had meanwhile moved from Rhodes to Civitavecchia, Italy. In about 1526, however, Zoppo came to believe the pickings would be richer in the western Mediterranean where Barbarossa and Dragut were accruing fame and fortune. He accordingly moved to the coast of Tunisia where he allied himself with Dragut, a long-time acquaintance the offspring of a Greek-speaking mother. From his base in the Gulf of Gabes, Zoppo annually joined Dragut in raiding Italy, though on occasion he returned to the Aegean to tweak the Venetian Lion of St. Mark. It was after one of these occasions in 1538 that he and Dragut came up from Candia to join Barbarossa for the Battle of Prevesa at which the Genovese Admiral Andrea Doria was outwitted and defeated. Zoppo is most renown not for sailing in company with Dragut, however, and not for participating in the Battle of Prevesa. He is not even most renown for his 1541 capture of a Hospitaller war galley commanded by Jean Parisot de la Valette who 16 years later was to become Grand Master of the Knights of Malta. Zoppo Reis was most renown for the bone-chilling tap of his peg leg patrolling the deck of his warship. Valette knew that tap; he spent a year at Zoppo's oars. One year before Valette's capture, it might be noted, Dragut had been taken prisoner by the Doria family and was also spending time at the oars. This anecdote could go on from here but must pause. Come join us at the crossroads of history for ensuing chapters. Come join us in Gocek, Turkey. There or elsewhere we can put you aboard a charter gulet for the holiday cruise of a lifetime. We can put you aboard a charter gulet with an experienced crew able to show you azure sailing waters off the western coast of Turkey and between neighboring Aegean islands of Greece, able to show you Zoppo's paths through the Aegean to and from Candia, able to show you the Knight's route from Civitavecchia to Candia to an engagement with Zoppo.
