Chiflik, Turkey

After been through several days of grooming and rainy weather, the sky finally comes to a break! Furak sms us last night, to extend his assistance for ocean expedition, agreement was made without a second thought! The journey started about 12noon after Desmond took back Take-away from the Marina restaurant, the best Kebab in town! The take-off was easy, we quickly found ourselves sailing out the breakwater of Netsel Marina. Wind was breezy.

The wind was helpful and we managed to get 10 knots on the sea, which was very good! Along the journey, fishing boats and some other sailing boats companied at a lower speed; it took us an hour to reach the destination with the helpful wind at average 15 knots.

Chiflik, another beautiful destination in Aagean Sea, the town was told as a famous town for Russian tourist during summer time with its quiet nature.

Returning journey was not as fast as the outward journey, less wind but we managed to trim the sails and get ourselves back just before the sunset. We saw a huge fish jump not far from the entrance of Marmaris sea on the journey back.

  1. How superb!!! Pity the Skipper is not as young and good looking as the crew. Both looking very relaxed and obviously enjoying getting out enjoying the ride. Looking forward to being part of the crew (young and good looking also) as well. See you soon. Purser Pell
