Are you searching for Gocek in Turkey? Well, Gocek is forty-two nautical miles ENE of Rhodes Town in Greece and within 15 road miles of Dalaman International Airport (DLM) in Turkey. In Gocek or elsewhere we can put you aboard a bare boat charter yacht for the holiday of a lifetime. Perhaps in the way of an exploratory cruise along the coast of Turkey and among offshore islands of Greece. Perhaps sailing in the wake of Sir Robert Ainslie, Britain's ambassador to the Ottoman Porte from 1776 to 1792. A career diplomat raised and educated in France, Ainslie had in 1770 come to the attention of King George III as a member of Britain's embassy staff in Paris. That year the Spanish Governor of Buenos Aires evicted British residents of the Falkland Islands, initiating a march toward the first Falkland Islands War. Practically a native of France, Ainslie for two years leveraged his many associations to briefly intercept and read the diplomatic mail of French Foreign Minister Emmanuel-Armand de Richelieu. Richelieu was encouraging Spanish intransigence with promises of French support. British knowledge of this encouragement caused French King Louis XV to refuse Spain assistance. Richelieu was soon dismissed, Ainslie was rewarded with an ambassador posting and knighthood, and the first Falkland Islands War was postponed 210 years. During Ainslie's tenure at the Ottoman Porte the coast of Turkey and offshore islands of Greece were all Ottoman, and Sir Robert considered it his duty to be familiar with the Ottoman realm. A confidant of Sultan Abdul Hamid I and fluent in spoken Turkish as well as the French language of diplomacy, Sir Robert was an antiquarian and numismatist of considerable renown. He was also patron of Luigi Mayer, a gifted German artist with Italian roots and schooling. During the forepart of 1792 Sir Robert's final year as ambassador he dispatched Mayer on a tour of our coast and nearby islands, Mayer commissioned to produce renderings of 96 landmarks. One of these marvelous depictions which has come down to us as The Harbor At Cacamo appears above. It is in fact a depiction of the north shore of Kekova Roads, a regular Dufour 375 stop. Surely Kekova Roads is worthy of your inspection if it was worthy of Sir Robert's commission. But don't pause too long at Kekova as there are other equally auspicious landmarks which Luigi Mayer committed to posterity and our enjoyment, from Hadrian's Granary and Cistern at Andriake a few miles beyond Kekova Roads to the Roman theater at Fethiye near Gocek to the Knights Castle at Bodrum, from the Temple of Hera at Samos to the Artemis Gallery at Ephesus. And more. Many more. So come aboard a Dufour 375, a bare boat sailing yacht on charter in Greece and Turkey. Come aboard in Gocek. We can put you aboard a bare boat charter yacht and show you the flat sailing waters of the Gulf of Gocek, show you Robert Ainslie's path down the coast of Turkey, show you Luigi Mayer's route back up the coast of Turkey and among Greek islands.
