East Med Yacht Rally

Hi All,

Just completed this event and would highly recommned it to any others - sail or power boat owners - who wish to explore this side of the Med in company. The pace is frantic as a lot of ground is covered in a relatively shirt period of time - but it is super value at only 250 euros per person for two months marina berthing plus lots of freebie parties, food and grog.

We've updated our own blog at If anyone has any questions I can answer pleased to respond.



PS At least six US flagged yachts took part and all proudly flew national flags in Syria, Lebanon, Egypt. No issues at all.
Don't take life too seriously. No ones going to make it out alive......Go see our blog at

That's good to hear John. No incidents!!

Man I do miss cruising around the Med. I have visited France so much. I visited that country more than the other European countries. Spain would be the second one on the list. Followed by Italy. And Isreal.
