A flotilla consists of a group of yachts (between five and ten vessels) which all follow the same itinerary. During the day you sail independently but you can always refer back to the lead boat. We all depart from the same bay and meet again all together in the evening. Every morning a briefing takes place in which the cruising plan of the day is discussed, a weather report is given (when necessary!) and where you get useful tips about that day’s cruising. This is where we are “at home”! Once on your way you can contact the lead boat by VHF, an easy-to-handle sender/receiver radio transmitter. The flotilla leader also gives technical help if necessary. Even experienced sailors often choose to go with a flotilla because of the social advantage of sailing in a group.
You might call it “sailing – apart – together”. You are not forced into any social obligations but often the group finds itself together in the evening to eat and drink and share experiences of the day. (‘did you also see that many dolphins?’...) Flotilla sailing combines the safety of sailing in a group with the freedom of your own boat. There is no strict program. The flotilla leader is more of a nautical companion and source of information than an entertainer. Sailing distances vary from 5 to 30 nautical miles.
Your sailing experience:
To join a flotilla at least one person on board must have enough sailing experience to be able to navigate safely a yacht of this size. If you can easily manage to sail an open sailing boat on a lake, this should be sufficient experience for sailing in the Göcek area. If you feel doubtful about your sailing ability you might take a course in your own country before leaving to refresh your knowledge. Also we can sail with you for half a day or a day to introduce you to the yacht. In this case, please let us know beforehand! (Min.3 persons per intruction session).
It's also possible to get one day refreshment instructions from our bases. Please give us notice if you like to obtain for this option. We are always glad to give or send you the extra information you need, in odere to prepare you in the best possible way for your vacations.
