FOLLOW THE FLEET - Bodrum Cup day sailing Day One
Tuesday 23 October
The 30th Bodrum Cup is about to get underway, to celebrate the most elemental of Bodrum’s cultural roots in the sea, the boats and the people who have created their livelihoods, and who helped many enjoy the beautiful coasts around the Bodrum Peninsula and on the Aegean.
We might have all been out on the smaller daily tour boats, or even the bigger double deck ones, but until you have been out on a full size luxury gulet, you won’t appreciate how beautiful they are and to be on, particularly when the sails go up!
To be on a full size gulet, while watching a fleet of some 80 gulets setting sail in the Bodrum Cup is a rare and wonderful experience.
You’re invited to enjoy that experience.
Take a place on the 31 meter M/S Smyrna while it follows the first day of the 2nd rally of the 30th Bodrum Cup, starting and finishing inProtected content . It is going out with an international video crew, and we will be joining the boat also, enjoying a sumptuous smorgasbord lunch and snacks, water and soft drinks. The cost of 45 Euro covers your day on deck. You will be able to bring your own alcohol to drink on board.
A minimum of 10 people is asked for. Maximum 12.

Practical Details

Wear/ bring: Layers, the sun will be warm, but the wind and possible showers make a sweater/ rain coat advisable. It will be unlikely that there will be time to stop and swim.

Payment, and passport details will be taken 3 days earlier, as the captain must submit a passenger list for the day.
