It's all fine, I can't see any difference in the tourist parts. Some Russians are returning. Turkey has not had a good summer for visitors, but I can see no difference to years before, except fewer yachts on the water means more space for me.

Hi Mark,

Good to hear that the problems in that part of the world are not affecting things on the sailing front very much.

I'm considering taking my Hanse to the Med next year, so would appreciate details on what the facilities are like around Turkey and Croatia and the likely costs of marina berths. Its fine looking on the web but there is nothing like real life feedback from fellow sailors in the area.

Cheers,

Rob

Hi Rob. I'm just looking for my 6 month winter berth, didm and port iosos north of bodrum are about 1500 euro for the six month in the water, a bit more on the hard, Leros marina on Greek Leros is about 1300. Marmaris is good value, but yalikavak and turgetries are expensive (but lovely and no more than the south coast of England) you can anchor or tie up,to loads of restaurant jetties for free in turkey, Greek island town keys are very cheap, as is the marina on Kos.

here are some up to date pricing from today and yesterday.  all for the 385.  we are just over 44 square metres (length x beam) so you can pro rata these prices for your boats.

Didm 166 days through the winter starting 15th November 1546 Euro.  Lift out 578 with 15 days on the hard, making 6 months ish.

12 months 4141 euro including 13th month free and 40% off at other D marin locations (2 more turkey and 4 in greece)

Port Iosos marina 1297 euro promotion for 6 months over winter.  

3643 for the year but with an extra 5 months thrown in for free.

Mark

A 545, a 445 and my little 385 in Port Iasos Turkey after a lovely run down from Didm.  Tiny marina, but worth a visit, good views and nice little bar.  Quiet.

All sounds fabulous and the prices as you say are not that much different from the South coast of UK also a little cheaper than a lot of the French med. I note this message thread is called back in the water for the autumn does that mean you get in some sailing during the autumn and winter? I've sailed in the UK during the winter for some great sailing as the weather can be surprising with some good days. I have also sailed the Western Med over a number of years from Barcelona up along the French coast from around Sete to Monaco during the summer. This area is a little devoid of wind during the summer but I have been told and shown the damage caused in the winter when they get some horrendous winds and storms. Does the same not apply to Turkey and Greece?


Cheers,

Rob

Hi Rob. We sail from April until some stile in June, and then late September until end of November. In July and August is too hot for us, and we go home to see the young ones, although we only have 1 left at university, the other three are working now. April is already in the 20s and June as high as 30 degrees. We are sat in high 20s today. Last year November was spectacular, still 20s in the day, cool enough to sleep well at night, lovely winds 10-15 it's most days, and sunny. It was, they say, a good year, but we are hoping for the same. The strongest winds also happen when we are away in the summer, although it tends to be in 2 or 3 days peaks, so everyone just picks a bay or town key and explores or relaxes, do a bit of maintenance or go for a swim. Then off to the next bay or island if you are in Greek waters. There are lots of boats around from April through to September to meet up with for a chat and a meal. October and November are quiet, so we explore bays that are stuffed full in high season, and anchor where we like. The end of the med does get some high winds now and again, but damage is rare as far as I know. There are isolated cases of localized ''twisters' knocking boats over on the hard, but these are so rare that everyone comments on them. We lift in the summer whilst we are in the uk, and the yards are empty, and leave the boat in the water in winter. We don't have to worry about freezing water pipes or condensation! Probably the biggest worry is dodgy electrics in some places, so it's a question as to how to keep your batteries safe.
