A Curious Blend of Old and New, Turkey Combines Simplicity and Sophistication
Diversity is the word for this dazzling destination where the ruins of ancient civilisations mix with vibrant nightlife, cosmopolitan shopping and modern marinas. And now holidaymakers looking for the ultimate Turkish experience can discover towns untouched by tourism and beautiful bays still only accessible by boat as part of a Sunsail sailing flotilla.
Flotillas are the ultimate in social sailing, where you sail your own boat under the watchful guidance of a Lead Crew - including a qualified skipper, a hostess and an engineer – along with about 10 other boats. All holidaymakers have to do is relax and discover this amazing country including experiencing delicious, exotic cuisine, meeting friendly locals and uncovering hidden treasures in an Aladdin’s cave of bazaars selling spices, silver trinkets and carpets.
“Flotilla holidays appeal to all ages and we find that once people have experienced them, they come back again and again,” said Sunsail Yacht Charter’s marketing manager Kim Lehmann. “Our cruising area encompasses some of the most stunning sailing grounds that southern Turkey has to offer. Blessed by sunshine and good winds, you’re almost guaranteed great sailing on moderate seas."
“There is always plenty of free time to explore on your own and then meet your fellow sailors and lead crew at agreed destinations for barbecues, cocktail parties and picnics. And on family flotillas there is an activities coordinator especially for the kids.”
Sunsail Yacht Charters invented the flotilla sailing holiday in 1974 and continues to lead the way with these fun-filled social sailing adventures around the world.
Turkey is less expensive than most Mediterranean destinations and few others possess such a wealth of culture, history and intrigue.
Special offer: For a limited time only, receive a free ‘Nibbles & Drinks’ package* for your first night on board, when you book any Turkish flotilla for the 2010 sailing season (best times May to October). In addition, holidaymakers who book six months in advance can take advantage of Sunsail’s special five per cent Advance Booking Discount.
* Applies to new bookings only.
