Memorable bare boat charters sailing Turkey and Greece. Unforgettable honeymoons cruising the Turkish coast and among Greek Aegean islands. Holidays of a lifetime at the crossroads of history. Begin your yacht charter holiday or honeymoon sailing a bare boat or bareboat from Gocek, Turkey, twelve nautical miles up the gulfs of Fethiye and Gocek from the open Mediterranean Sea. Sail under a comforting sun on flat water to a different pine encircled bay each day, never tiring of the thrill of each bay's unique ambience. Or sail beyond the gulfs of Fethiye and Gocek 42 nautical miles to Rhodes Town. To Greece! To a Greek island. And keep on going to a second Greek island and then to a third ad infinitum. Infinitum should read each day for two years. Isn't this the holiday for which you are searching? And it's a holiday at the crossroads of history! Books of history handed down to us by Thucydides (bust at left) and his fellow warrior-historian Xenophon involve the seemingly endless strife between democratic Athens and oligarchic Sparta. This was an enmity for the ages stretching over and beyond the 27-year Peloponnesian War, through a ten-year peace in name only, and then over an eight-year Corinthian War ending in 387 BC. During this period Athenians and Spartans were frequently immune to common sense and ordinary behavioral constraints. A 390 BC example of the upside-down logic often prevailing between these belligerents occurred in waters between Gocek and Rhodes Town. At the latter port oligarchs had seized the fortress, a fortress designed to repel assaults from the sea. Democrats were in possession of the town itself, not to mention the rest of the island, and an uneasy truce prevailed even though the fortress was assailable from the landward side. So along came the Spartan admiral Teleutias in command of 27 triremes to give unnecessary and impossible succor to the fortress. Within a few miles of the harbor Teleutias encountered a ten-trireme Athenian squadron under Philocrates headed for Cyprus in support of the rebel Evagoras, the latter rebelling against the Persian king. This was at a time when Athens and Persia were allies and both were at war with Sparta. With an overwhelming numerical advantage, Teleutias could not desist. So Philocrates had intent to make war against his Persian ally, and Teleutias destroyed a squadron going to make war against his Persian enemy. Surely, upside-down logic. Further, upon reaching Rhodes Town Teleutias was unable to alter the balance of unreality, even finding it difficult to aid those inside the fortress given seaward defenses. One more example of senseless war, another lesson Thucydides and Xenophon must have assumed we would learn. Well, should you intend to sail the crossroads of history anyway, please remember that bare boats come in a multitude of designs, some new, some old, and some in between, some exquisitely maintained ("selects," the ancients termed them) and some ignored, some priced fairly and some priced unfairly. To charter the boat meeting your criteria, you need an advocate of your interests at the scene, making an experienced selection.
