Sun Sail
Outdoor Activity Cruises
Friday, 27 February 2015 00:00
cyclin2From ScicSailing, a specialist in sailing cruises around the Aegean and Mediterranean seas, comes a programme of outdoor activity themed cruises for the 2015 season. They include sailing cruises combined with hiking, cycling, golf, as well as learning how to sail and taking part in the Bodrum Regatta.

Their sailing instructor is Serdar Çiςek, coach for the Turkish national team youth dinghy class. He will have guests ready to sail the sheltered turquoise waters of the eastern Mediterranean in a week and is a great way to get into sailing. Departures are on 23 May and 3 October.

The Bodrum Regatta is an annual sailing race with about 70 classic yachts. For ScicSailing passengers, this is the chance to compete together with the crew to win the Bodrum Cup. It’s a week of adrenalin, followed by a celebration at the Bodrum Marina Yacht Club. Race week is 19 - 24 October.
