The Bodrum Cup Regatta
Sail in the Bodrum Cup Regatta in Turkey: Gulet cruise with a difference! Join in as part of the crew on this celebrated gulet race in Turkey.
Sign up for this unique Turkey tour - an archaeological cruise aboard a traditional Turkish gulet - but with a difference. You’ll be helping to sail… under the expert guidance of the boat’s crew.
For the first week you’ll literally be learning the ropes - getting a feel for the boat and getting actively involved. Then in the second week you’ll be taking part in the celebrated Bodrum Cup Regatta - a 5 day race featuring over 100 classic wooden yachts (Turkish gulets) - a truly stunning spectacle. During the regatta, half a day is spent sailing, while the other half is given over to relaxation or cultural adventures.
The Turkey tour combines all the great highlights of our standard gulet cruises - beautiful food (lunches are more basic to allow for the sailing), superb swimming opportunities, and spectacular landscapes.
If taking part in the Bodrum Cup weren’t enough, Peter will be onboard to personally escort you back in time into Turkey’s ancient past. The itinerary on this trip will be fluid and flexible - harnessing the wind and sailing is our priority, but we’ll also visit some breathtaking ruins, like the temple tombs of Kaunos, and the colonnades of Knidos.
