Turkey summer sailing


(First post and a question always seems such bad behaviour but hey,)

We (our small family) are just about to book a holiday with a flotilla out of Orhaniye in Turkey and just before I did i though I should make an effort to check what the waters round there are like at the moment with respect to refugees.

I'm sure it's overblown in the press, I'm sure it will be lovely but I thought I should make a token effort to somehow check.

Errm anyone sailed there recently who could report back?


And hello.

Re: Turkey summer sailing

We sailed the area (Turgutreis en some of the Greek islands) last October; only refugees we saw were on Kos. As long as you do not say anything bad about Erdogan you should be fine.
Sailors do it with the wind...
