Departing from Orhaniye last Saturday morning with my good friends from Istanbul, Neylan and Serhat, you have treated us to a magnificent week's sailing in the Agean Sea. The quaint coves and bays, together with the small harbours, have certainly inspired me to revisit Turkey for more sailing in the future.
We have had mostly good winds and as well as 'sight-seeing'. It has also been very useful to all of us to practice some much under-practised seaman skills. I lost count how many man overboard drills we conducted yesterday!
Anyway, great week, great sailing, great crew and a great captain.
