This flotilla sailing holiday allows time to explore the charming anchorages in the attractive pine-wooded Fethiye Gulf.

Any of the yachts based at Fethiye can join the Fethiye flotilla and explore this beautiful stretch of the Turkish coast in company. The flotilla skipper and hostess accompany the flotilla on the lead yacht and are on hand for help and advice as required. They have the latest weather forecasts and know the best anchorages for lunch stops.

With alternating one week itineraries you can choose between the Fethiye/Cold Water Bay route or the Karacaoren route, both taking in stunning bays with crystal clear waters as well as ancient sites. Those with more time may choose to combine the two routes and enjoy a two week holiday for a truly memorable experience or take the two week special flotilla route to Datca which runs on set dates in the high season.

The Fethiye Bay is sheltered with north-westerly winds Force 2-3 but on longer passages along the coast winds may be occasionally 5-6. These fade as the sun goes down to give a calm night on anchor in one of the numerous sheltered bays and anchorages.

"We have just returned from a fabulous 2 weeks sailing from Fethiye. It was easily the best experience we have had with perfect sailing weather throughout. The area around Fethiye Bay is lovely and there is plenty of historic and natural interest as well as beautiful clear water for swimming and great food. Our flotilla leaders, Mike and Debbie are the best we have come across and have to sing their praises! They have so much sailing experience and an excellent knowledge of the local area where they have developed good relationships with local people, that helped to make our visits to restaurants etc even better. We will definitely be visiting Turkey again-would love to sail with Mike and Debbie again-but have been impressed with the maturity, experience and humour of other Nautilus leaders on other trips as well, so, as they say, we'll be back!"

Sailing Qualifications

To skipper a bareboat charter or flotilla yacht, you need to hold a practical sailing certificate equivalent to RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification or RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC). For charters in Greece, you must now have the ICC certificate. You must also be assisted by at least one competent crew member over the age of 18.

For charters in Croatia, Malta and the Canaries, at least one member of the crew or the skipper will also need a VHF licence.

RYA qualifications can be obtained by RYA sailing schools in the UK or alternatively choose from one of our overseas centres in Gibraltar, Greece or Turkey.

For Caribbean and Tropical charters, formal qualifications are not compulsory, however, you should be Day Skipper standard and be assisted by at least one competent crew. A brief sailing resume should be provided to outline your experience.

If you don't hold the relevant qualifications then why not add a skipper?
