    Sailing Cruises

    Get rid of the crowd of the city, workplace or the four walls of your home; it's time to meet the sea. The most beautiful bays of the Aegean and the Mediterranean, thousands of green and blue tones blending in a natural environment - How about a fascinating journey to go?


    Take the Blue Voyage and integrate with nature; be filled by the color of the sea and the sky. You will feel the strength of the wind and waves taking over you, bringing their calming effects as you become part of nature. On your Blue Voyage you will be captivated by peace as you start each new day with the gentle sound and roll of lazy waves, adorned with the orchestral symphony of the birds. It is joy, happiness and freshness.

    The Blue Voyage is to live an exotic romance at the twilight of the evening, to sip the elixir of love and to be drunk with pleasure. In short, for those who have made this journey before, it is a passion. For those who have not, it is a dream waiting to be lived. You do not need to be a master sailor to enjoy a Blue Voyage every day. Instead of hearing in songs or poems, just live the Blue Voyage; make your dream a reality.

    If you were to ask me, What does it mean to be a blue passenger?" I say this is a matter of consciousness . This consciousness gives a sense of privilege, a sense of superiority. But it does not separate blue passengers from others. On the contrary, it injects a sort of ethics which gives you the enthusiasm of teaching others the same ideals.
    Azra Erhat, from the Book "Blue Voyage"

    Pablo Neruda's wonderful poetry
    He who becomes the slave of habit,
    who follows the same routes every day,
    who never changes pace,
    who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
    who does not speak and does not experience,
    dies slowly.

    He or she who shuns passion,
    who prefers black on white,
    dotting ones "it's" rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
    that turn a yawn into a smile,
    that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
    dies slowly.

    He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
    who is unhappy at work,
    who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
    to thus follow a dream,
    those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
    die slowly.

    He who does not travel, who does not read,
    who does not listen to music,
    who does not find grace in himself,
    she who does not find grace in herself,
    dies slowly.

    He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
    who does not allow himself to be helped,
    who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
    dies slowly.

    Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
    reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.

    Only a burning patience will lead
    to the attainment of a splendid happiness.

    Pablo Neruda

    Races & Regattas

    Many of us cannot think of a life without speed, without adrenaline and without movement, without competing. Some of us may find a quiet holiday without some struggles very boring. Participate in sailing races will have you spend real effort and will provide some knowledge and skills. Sea and sailing requires being gentleman. But to force the boat within the rules, to compete in the spirit of the team, to fight with the seconds of clock , to finish jobs fast and without errors will add a lot to us.

    Learning to take risks, to force our skills, to combat the conditions of nature, staying stable will make us more self-confident, and if we get a victory and earn the respect of people, it will even much more colorful. You can find a race or regatta 12 months a year. If you want to join to a race in a sailing team individually or to bring your team and to race with yourselves, just find the attached calendar and make reservation. It will be a life time memory.

    Corporate Cruises & Team Bulding

    Sailing is a team sport. Every position on the boat makes people to do their duties in harmony and coordination. Shortcomings of each one on the boat effects the other ones and the boat itself just like the clock gears and a wheel. As a sport, it develops team spirit which is inherent in sailing, so it provides the most natural environment for corporate teamwork. , it is difficult to think of a better method than sailing in order to eliminate individuality created by daily business climate, selfishness and personal competitive environment. Pending 1 week with sailing team will inject strong team spirit.

    Sea and sailing the environment takes the edges of human character, make them close to each other, have them act as a team, teach them respect each other and themselves. Sharing tasks, sharing meals and sharing feelings will eliminate the accumulation of years. the efforts given together against the other boats and the nature, sun tanned skins, resting of brain and spirit around nature's most beautiful places will improve the performance of your team. Dignity and being gentleman which is part yachting will be injected into your team.

    What to bring to boat

    First of all you cannot bring bulky luggage to the boat. Space is very valuable in boats. Therefore, you should use soft and foldable bag like sports bag. Life in the boat is much more simple and practical. You should avoid bringing a lot of unnecessary things as on regular vacations. Items that you bring should the practical, sporty, and should be necessary. The following list will help you in this regard.

    As a requirement of modern life, many electronic devices have become part of our lives. We recommend you to leave them in home; you might bring some of them. There is only 12V power in boats unless moored to a pier which has outlets. So if you want to charge devices, you should bring car lighter adapters. Even if you bring 220V adapters, you cannot use them except some places which have power connection. Many restaurants only have limited generator power.

    A waterproof waist bag to store things like passport, credit cards, foreign exchange, and insurance would be very useful. Seasickness is a condition that sometimes even the experienced sailors can have. If you are not sure, bring high quality medication to keep the sea. Your travel will be much more enjoyable.
