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 yachts charter-sailing the Greek and Turkish Aegean may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. You must be searching for a yacht charter-sailing the Greek or Turkish Aegean. Otherwise you are searching for Kaptan Sevket, and that's unlikely. There is no other way to reach this page. So, could you be dreaming of swimming under pale-blue Greek skies? In an azure sea? Among sugar-cube encrusted islands? Or could you be hoping to charter sail the pine-clad Turkish coast? From one isolated clear-water cove to the next isolated clear-water cove? From one fascinating historical locale to the next fascinating historical locale? Or are you hoping to do both? Hoping to sail both the Greek and Turkish Aegean? How about charter sailing both aboard a crewed charter yacht with comfortable accommodations for twelve. How about chartering a crewed sailing yacht to cruise the Greek Dodecanese. The haunt of innumerable corsairs during centuries gone by. Or how about chartering a crewed yacht to sail Alexander's Path along the Turkish coasts of ancient Ionia and Caria and among offshore Sporades islands. While you holiday. While you have a group of friends holiday with you aboard a crewed charter yacht doing these things. While you have a class reunion. Or, rather, a reunion of a select group of classmates. Or while you have a club outing. Or while you simply have friends and family holiday with you aboard a charter yacht proceeding under sail from intriguing locale to intriguing locale at the crossroads of history. Perhaps cruising the mid-Aegean Cyclades or the eastern Sporades as did the corsair brothers Kara Hasan and Kara Tornus at the turn of the sixteenth century. Starting in Bodrum. Are you searching for Bodrum in Turkey? Well, it is eleven nautical miles NNE of Kos Town on the Greek island of Kos, and it has its own international airport within 40 minutes of the harbor. In Bodrum we can put you aboard Kaptan Sevket for the holiday of a lifetime, and we can send you out along tracks left by theCharter Sailing Greek Aegean aforementioned corsair brothers. Born in the 1470's of Greek parents on the Venetian-occupied island of Skyros, these brothers 20 years later took to the sea in small galliots called fustas (as those depicted to the right) and began preying on all things Venetian. In and out of Ottoman service, in during the Venetian war of 1499-1503 and out before and after, they like others of their contemporaries born under occupation turned on the occupiers. John McCain take note. These two corsair brothers frequently lurked off the coast of Venetian Candia (Crete), in 1497 with their own fustas and five others being fortunate enough to take two Venetian cargo vessels loaded with Cretan wine. Little of the captured cargo made it to resale, however, and so the brothers continued prowling the Aegean. Weeks later Kara Hasan with three accompanying fustas took two Venetian caravels exiting Aegina off the eastern Peloponnesus, one of the caravels hailing from Zara (Zadar) and the other from Curzola (Korcula). Arrested by Ottoman authorities in 1498 for these acts of piracy, Kara Hasan emerged from prison in the same year with commissions in the Ottoman navy, one for himself and the other for his brother. Over the course of the next year, it should be noted, both brothers stood the Ottoman Empire in good stead. Operating under the orders of Ottoman fleet commander Kara Nisanci Davud Pasha, Kara Hasan and others captured a Venetian war galley and two Venetian brigantines before he and his brother were dispatched to defend against a Venetian siege of Kefallinia. There Kara Hasan was severely wounded, and his brother is believed to have accompanied him back to Skyros to heal. Kara Tornus thereafter went on to help defend against a 1502 Venetian assault on Lesbos. But at war's end in the following year both brothers re-engaged in their private crusade against Venice, attacking Tinos, Mykonos, and Milos among other Venetian islands and doing so much damage that the Ottomans turned on them both, burning their home in Skyros with their mother trapped inside. Detained in 1505 by one-time comrades-in-arms, Kara Tornus escaped to remain a thorn in Venice's side for the next five years. Kara Hasan, though, decided to move on and become a Barbarossa lieutenant in the western Mediterranean. But that's another story as there is no room here. Let us put you aboard a charter yacht with an experienced crew able to show you Alexander's Path down the coasts of Ionia and Caria, able to show you the tracks of both Kara Hasan and Kara Tornus as they crisscrossed the Turkish and Greek Aegean, and able as well to tell you of Kara Hasan's years with the Barbarossas.
