Or is it both about which you dream? The Greek and Turkish Aegean. How about realizing your dream aboard a charter yacht with group accommodations? Room for you two and three like-minded couples. How about chartering a sailing yacht to cruise Sailing Turkish AegeanTurkey's ancient Lycia from Gocek. Or to sail the crossroads of history, cruising, for example, Leone Strozzi's routes along the coasts of Lycia and neighboring Caria and among Greek Aegean islands. While you enjoy those bazaars and potted geraniums. Would you like to have such a holiday cruising here, at the crossroads of history? Surely you would like to holiday aboard a charter yacht proceeding leisurely from one enchanting locale to another. Who wouldn't? One who wouldn't was the aforementioned Strozzi. A Hospitaller Knight of Malta from the age of 20, Leone Strozzi never again had a holiday. A warrior his entire life, neither did he ever wed nor ever have children. The son of Fillippo Strozzi and Clarice de Medici of Florence, fluent in ancient Greek and Latin as well as French and Italian, a mathematician accomplished in the liberal arts, the nephew of Pope Clement VII, and the brother of Piero Strozzi, Marshall of France, Leone Strozzi believed himself destined for greatness and, it is said in memoriam, was considered by all who knew him as the greatest seaman of his time. Placed in command of four Hospitaller galleys at the age of 22, in July 1537 his flagship Santa Petronilla was engaged by two janissary-packed galleys under the command of Sidi Ali Celebi (a renowned poet and author) off Paxos, sinking one galley and capturing the other. Two months later he took two Ottoman galliots, a fusta, and a brigantine north of Sicily, liberating eighty Christian oarsmen. That December, still 22 years of age, he rushed by the same brigantine to his father's assistance. His father had become a victim of Cosimo de Medici, Duke of Florence and an in-law, as well. But a ruthless in-law. Leone Strozzi was too late; his father was to die in a Florentine prison, and Leone Strozzi was to flee with his three brothers to France. There they came under the wing of Catherine de Medici, prospective Queen of France, cousin, and childhood companion. By 1543 (age 28) Leone Strozzi had become commander of France's Mediterranean galleys, France then an ally of Ottoman Turkey, and, perforce, an enemy of the Knights of Malta. That year Strozzi joined Sailing Greek AegeanKheir-ed-Din Barbarossa in a joint assault on Genoa, and that year he was defrocked by the Hospitallers. One year later he accompanied Barbarossa across the Aegean to Constantinople and was received at Topkapi Palace by Sultan Suleiman. But it was an uncomfortable role for Leone Strozzi (yes, that's him at left following Hospitaller reinstatement, wearing the black non-combat surcoat of a Knight of the Grand Cross, the original on display at St. John's Gate Museum in London) and for the next six years he busied himself fighting the English off the coast of Scotland. It was not until 1551 and 1552 that Strozzi returned to the Aegean, with three ships of his own frequently engaging the enemy off the coasts of Ottoman Lycia and Caria. Reinstated in the second of those years, he was appointed the Hospitaller Order's first-ever General of the Galleys. This assignment would come to an end two years later, however, when he rushed to the aid of brother Piero at the 1554 siege of Siena. There at the age of 39 he would take an arquebus ball from a soldier of the same Cosimo de Medici who had done in his father. What caused this internecine struggle between Medicis? Have you a week to read on? Or a year? Or would you prefer to cruise the eastern Mediterranean and Aegean? The crossroads of history? Starting in Gocek? Are you searching for Gocek in Turkey? Well, it is in the NW corner of the Gulf of Fethiye 42 nautical miles ENE of Rhodes Town and 15 road miles from its own international airport at Dalaman. There we can put you aboard a bare boat for the odyssey of a lifetime. We can put you aboard a charter yacht and point you toward the flat sailing waters of the Gulfs of Gocek and Fethiye, show you Alexander's Path down the coast of Lycia, show you Cleopatra's Route up the coast of Caria and among Greek islands, and show you Leone Strozzi's several tracks in the Greek and Turkish Aegean.
