Charter in Turkey
Although I previewed the note, edit didn''t seem to work, so I posted anyway. I''ve made a few corrections below.
I can''t help you with personal experience on a flotilla in Turkey. Earlier this year I went on a flotilla in Greece with sailing Holidays (www.sailingholidays.com). They don''t have a flotilla in Turkey, but I was satified enough to book a flotilla in Croatia next year.
However, a couple on the flotilla in Greece mentioned a flotilla they took in Turkey with Setsail (www.setsail.co.uk) and they seemed satisfied enough that I made a point to remember the name of the company.
Flotillas don''t seem all that popular with US sailors. Pick up a copy of Yachting Monthly, a UK publication, and you''ll find a few more companies that offer flotillas. BTW, Yachting Monthy seems to me to be superior to US sailing journals, as I''d earlier noticed for automotive journals.
Finally, I''m quite interested in sharing information amoung folks interested in flotillas. I''d thought of asking sailnet if there would be any interest in a Flotilla message board. I''m quessing it wouldn''t get much activity. Howeve, us starting sailors need to buy a lot of stuff, and I''ve certainly bought a quite a lot from sailnet.
