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 on gulets charter sailing Turkey and Greece may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. Are you searching for a gulet charter sailing Turkey and Greece on holiday? Is that why the robots and spiders sent you to this web page. Could you be thinking of a yacht charter cruising the eastern Mediterranean? Could you be dreaming of white-sand beaches under stark mountain backdrops? Do you hope to go sailing among remote Greek islands off tourism's beaten path? Would you like to island hop the Aegean? Not back-packing on ferries but taking your own bed and living quarters with you? Bathroom, too. How about doing it aboard a handsome crewed motor-sailing gulet with more-than-comfortable accommodations for sixteen guests. Starting in Gocek. That's right, charter a crewed sailing yacht cruising from a modern port with its own international airport at Dalaman (DLM) 25 minutes distant by road, a modern port precisely 42 nautical miles from Rhodes Town in Greece. Modern port, yes, but ancient Callimache. Now Gocek, Callimache was two thousand years ago a seaport of sufficient stature to be listed in the Roman Stadiasmus, the Stadiasmus sailing directions for ancient mariners. Prior to the coming of the Romans, prior even to Charter Sailing 
Turkeythe 4th century BC coming of Alexander of Macedon, Gocek may have been known as Hyparna, the name Hyparna known to us only from records kept by Alexander's scribes. Those scribes cite Hyparna as a fortified village east of the Indus, now the Dalaman River. Hyparna was then defended by Greek mercenaries in the pay of Persia, but mercenaries not paid enough to put up more than token resistance. Alexander hardly paused. Neither did he pause for long at nearby Telmessus, now Fethiye, though he did leave a detachment of Macedonians there to deny Persia the port's magnificent natural harbor. Among Macedonians Amyntas was a relatively common name. Amyntas was not a Telmessian name nor was it a Lycian name. So it might be surmised that the magnificent temple tomb in the hill above Fethiye, a temple tomb inscribed with the name Amyntas and architecturally dated to the late 4th century BC, may well have been appropriated as the final resting place of one of Alexander's principal lieutenants. A principal lieutenant because, after all, it's hardly likely an Alexander minion was laid to rest in such a tomb! What of it, you ask! Alexander's Path, that's what, a must-read by Freya Stark available from your local bookstore! Would you not like to holiday with friends and family aboard an aesthetically pleasing charter yacht sailing Alexander's path? Sailing leisurely through ancient history at the crossroads of history? Perhaps cruising east from Gocek to Kalkan, gateway to the heart of Lycia, to Patara and Pinara and Letoon and Xanthos, home of those mighty Trojan allies whom Homer cited in his Iliad, also available from your local bookstore. Or cruising further along Alexander's path to Andriake where four hundred years later Paul of Tarsus was to transship while a prisoner en route to Rome. Where sixty years later still the Roman Emperor Hadrian was to dedicate the massive 16-vault cistern depicted in the photograph above, a cistern few people today are able to locate and which until recently was seen by perhaps five (that's the handful five, not five million) of Turkey's thirty-one million annual visitors. Would you like to see it? Would you like to have the crew of Kaya Guneri III take you there? Of course you would! Come join us then. Come join us in Gocek. There or elsewhere we can put you aboard a crewed sailing yacht for the holiday of a lifetime. We can put you aboard a charter yacht with an experienced crew able to show you the Gulfs of Gocek and Fethiye, able to show you Amyntas's tomb, able to discuss Alexander's cavalry commander, Amyntas by name, able to show you the heart of Lycia, and able to take you to Hadrian's cistern. Kaya Guneri III, a superb crewed gulet charter sailing Turkey and Greece. Contact Blue Cruise Yacht Charters today at blcryacht@aol.com
