Me and two of my friends are renting
a brand new oceanis
34 for 1 week in may to sail between marmaris and datca (or bodrum). We are all almost without experience. My friend goes to Gocek for 1 week each year for the past 10 years with his family
but they don't usually leave the protected Gocek area. Him and I had sailing lessons
on a 50 footer for about 20 hours each, and had a bavaria
50 for 1 week in gocek but with a captain
. 3rd friend has no experience whatsoever.
For our first trip alone we wanted something simple like marmaris-datca trip and back but some say we should just stick to Gocek. For first timers like us, do you think we can do Marmaris-Datca without major problems and should go for it? I feel confident we have the knowledge but never been on this kind of trip before. If you think we should do it and its not that tough a route
, what advice can you offer me regarding sea and wind
conditions in that area around may, and what I must watch out for. All and any advice of past experiences is appreciated.
By the way, we are all turkish and have been to many of these locations before on land, and we feel that gives us an advantage if something goes wrong.
