Catamaran Sailing Greece

Few other yachts available for bareboat sailing in Greece and Turkey
can offer comparable comfort and privacy. Naval architects Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot Prevost based their design of the Lagoon 440 on the latest multi-hull technology. Extraordinary care has been taken in the aesthetic and functional design of this catamaran: on deck, coach roof lines are long and elegant, forms are dynamic, and spaces are cleverly used. The raised central helm gives perfect 360 degree visibility, and all control lines are within reach. Even a reduced crew can easily maneuver the Lagoon 440. The hull design is powerful yet seaworthy, while care in weight distribution reduces pitching to a minimum. A high ratio sail plan and fine hull appendices make the Lagoon 440 a fast, seaworthy, and
elegant catamaran sailing Greece and Turkey.

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 catamaran sailing in Greece and Turkey may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. Could you be searching for a catamaran sailing Greece or Turkey or both? Or simply for a lagoon? Or are you searching for any multi-hull charter-sailing lagoons along the southwest coast of Turkey or among Aegean islands of Greece? Could you be dreaming of ghosting from pine-encircled lagoon to pine-encircled cove on Turkey's Turquoise Coast? Or could you be dreaming of a bare boat catamaran charter in Greece? Of a stable platform on which to ride the Meltemi wind from remote Greek island to remote Greek island? Of a yacht on which to poke into lagoons surrounded by Greek blue and white? Or surrounded by nothing at all? Or do you wish to sail both Greece and Turkey? How about sailing one or the other or both aboard a catamaran with accommodations for nine. Or for ten in a pinch. How about chartering such a catamaran to cruise the crossroads of history. A bare boat on which to explore history along the coast of Turkey and among nearby Aegean islands of Greece. And while exploring history also basking under a gentle sun and swimming in clear seawater. Not the first but certainly one of the more remarkable figures creating history here was an Athenian statesman and general by the name of Thrasybulus. Thrasybulus was born in Athens in the middle of the 5th century BC and first came to the attention of history as a trireme captain at Samos in 411BC. At the time, oligarchs there and in Athens attempted a coup and intended to come to terms with Athens' oligarchic foe Sparta. Successful in Athens, coup leaders failed at Samos when confronted by Catamaran Sailing Greecedemocrats including Thrasybulus. Samian coup leaders, mostly military, were then deposed by their own troops and replaced, and Thrasybulus was thereupon elected a general of the sea. At the Battle of Cynossema which took place that same year in the Hellespont (Turkish Dardanelles), Thrasybulus in command of 76 triremes (as depicted at left) won a victory over a numerically superior but disorganized Spartan fleet commanded by Mindarus. This victory, coming as it did at a time when Athens' democratic government had been replaced by an oligarchy, and when an Athenian defeat could have ended the Peloponnesian War, had a significant impact. The newly confident Athenian fleet proceeded to win two more victories in the Hellespont in quick succession, the first at Abidos and the second a dramatic rout in 410 BC at Cyzicus (Balikhisar). These victories ended the Spartan threat to Athens' grain lifeline from the Black Sea. Why not charter a bare boat catamaran to sail in Thrasybulus's wake from Greece to Turkey, from Samos to Ephesus to Lesbos to the Hellespont. Or to cruise in his 407 BC wake from Samos to the siege of Spartan Phocaea (Turkish Foca), or in his 406 BC wake to the Battle of Arginusae (Turkish Ayvalik), an overwhelming Athenian victory. These victories at sea postponed but did not prevent ultimate loss of the war at Aegospotami, a 405 BC catastrophe which might well have been prevented had Thrasybulus and his fellow commanders not been earlier recalled or dismissed. During the years which followed Thrasybulus nevertheless rose to become Athenian head of state on three different occasions, the first when he overturned the rule of Athenian oligarchs in 403 BC for which he received a laurel crown at right below. But when a Spartan maritime threat developed during the Corinthian War, Thrasybulus was in 389 BC again dispatched to command Athenian naval forces off the coast of Asia Minor. With a flotilla of 40 triremes he proceededCatamaran Sailing Greece to re-establish Athenian hegemony from the Hellespont south to Lesbos, Chios, and Samos, from there to Kos and Rhodes, and from there along the coast of Anatolia as far as Pamphylian Aspendos near Antalya where in 388 BC he met an untimely end at the hands of over-taxed locals, murdered at night while asleep in his tent. "So perished Thrasybulus, a good and great man by all admission," according to Xenophon, the only contemporary chronicler of note. Make your own judgement! With history texts in hand sail Thrasybulus's path among Greek Aegean islands and down the coast of Asia Minor. While you holiday. While you holiday with a group of friends aboard a chartered catamaran proceeding leisurely from enchanting locale to historic crossroads. Beyond Lycia and Caria. All the way to Aspendos where each year there is an opera and ballet festival in that ancient city's unmatched Roman theater. (The Festival opens in 2015 on 5 September with a Gala Concert followed three days later by ballet performed to Ravel and Stravinski favorites. There are five additional programs concluding on 28 September with a Puccini opera.) Would you not like to sail this crossroads of history! Starting in Antalya proximate to Aspendos. Are you searching for Aspendos in Turkey? Well, it is in the north of the Gulf of Antalya twenty-five miles east of Antalya and 60 miles northwest of Scandaloro. There or elsewhere we can put you aboard a bare boat catamaran for the holiday of a lifetime. We can put you aboard a bare boat catamaran and point you toward Thrasybulus's many routes along the coast of Turkey and among nearby islands of Greece.
