Charter Yachts 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 charter yachts sailing Turkey and Greece may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. You must be searching for a charter yacht sailing Turkey or Greece. Unless it's a German beer you seek. If so, you've obviously found the wrong web page. But while you're here take a look at the Bavaria 41, an ideal charter yacht for a family of four to six, or for two or three couples with an urge to sail or an urge to visit Turkey or Greece. You or they may have read something about a yacht charter along Turkey's Turquoise Coast. Or your thoughts might be of a cruise among Greek islands. Or you may be dreaming of sailing both Greece and Turkey. Well, the Bavaria 41 is a charter yacht with family or friends accommodations ideal for sailing either or both. You and your family or you and friends might like to charter such a sailing yacht to cruise the coast of ancient Lycia, a part of southwestern Turkey. Or to sail the Aegean coasts of Lycia's neighboring Caria, Ionia, Aeolis, and the Troad, cruising among Greek Dodecanese and Sporades islands along the way. While you holiday on blue water under blue skies at the crossroads of history. One of the first historical narratives is Homer's Iliad . Set in the Troad, the Iliad reports on the exploits of numerous Lycian heroes, including Sarpedon and Glaucus who during the thirteenth century before the Christian era patrolled the shores between Gocek and the Gulf of Antalya, shores marked by dramatic mountain backdrops and pine-fringed clear-water coves. Also patrolling these shores were a succession of corsairs among whom was the Englishman Charter Yachts Sailing TurkeyJohn Ward, he of ballad fame, who was here three thousand years later. In February of 1607 Ward was in the western Aegean where he took in quick succession the Venetian galleon Rubi and a smaller Venetian, Carminati, bound from Athens to Venice with cargoes originating in the Levant. One of John Ward's more infamous exploits taking place two months later was the capture below the Gulf of Antalya of a large Venetian merchantman bound from Syria and Cyprus to Rhodes Town near Gocek. Called Reniera e Soderina, this heavily-armed argosy was overtaken in calm weather by two of Ward's lighter and faster raiders, bretones or round ships as depicted to the right, each nevertheless said to have mounted 40 guns and to have carried more than 100 armed men. The captured cargo was indigo, silk, cinnamon and cotton worth at least 100,000 pounds sterling at a time when sterling had value. Within months of her capture Ward had modified the Reniera's hull to that of a bretone and hoisted to her masthead an admiral's pennant. By 1608, however, John Ward at age 55 was thinking of marriage and settling down. He consequently petitioned James I, King of England, Scotland, and Ireland for a royal pardon, offering a portion of his ill-gotten wealth in payment. His petition was rejected. Months later Ward repudiated his Christian faith and took the name Yusuf Reis. He also wed a startling beauty from Palermo who took the name Yasemin. Then he returned to Tunis and the life which had gained him notoriety. James I meanwhile relented and dispatched to the Mediterranean a vessel commanded by one Henry Pepwell offering Ward a pardon or punishment. Blissfully married and profitably employed, Ward refused Pepwell's offer. Worse, for Pepwell, his crew mutinied and joined Ward. This episode may have given rise to the ballad entitled The Famous Sea-Fight between Captain Ward and the Rainbow of which the first lines go: Come all you gallant seamen bold, // All you that march to drum, // Let's go and look for Captain Ward, // Far on the sea he roams. // He is the biggest robber // That ever you did hear, // there's not been such a robber found // For above this hundred year. There are additional verses, and there are additional Ward ballads another of which goes: Go tell the king of England, go tell him this from me // If he reign king of all the land, I will reign king at sea. Join us and learn more. Starting in Gocek, perhaps. Are you searching for Gocek in Turkey? Well, Gocek is 42 nautical miles ENE of Rhodes Town on the Greek island of the same name and 15 road miles from its own international airport at Dalaman. In Gocek or elsewhere we can put you aboard a sailing yacht for the holiday of a lifetime cruising east past the Lycia of Sarpedon and Glaucus to Ward's Gulf of Antalya, or west to the Iliad's Aegean. A cruise through history or a cruise from one swim hole to the next aboard a charter yacht sailing Turkey and Greece. Contact Blue Cruise Yacht Charters today at blcryacht@aol.com
