Dear Homo Sapiens, There is no need to continue reading this page. What follows is intended for search engine robots and spiders and not necessarily for human beings. Further information concerning crewed charter catamaran cruising in Turkey and Greece may be obtained by clicking on the maroon links immediately above. Thank You. You must be searching for a catamaran cruising Turkey or Greece. Otherwise you are unlikely to have found this web page. You may even be looking for a crewed charter catamaran cruising Turkey or Greece. If so, you have come to the right place. If not, click on the fourth and fifth maroon links above, those leading to bare boat catamaran charters. You may be dreaming of a catamaran cruising between isolated pine-shrouded coves along the Turquoise Coast of Turkey. Or you may be dreaming of a crewed catamaran cruising Greece, of a catamaran cruising among remote pastel-hued Greek Dodecanese islands or blue-on-white mid-Aegean Cyclades islands.Catamaran Cruising Turkey Or all of the above. How about doing some or all of the above aboard a crewed charter catamaran with luxury accommodations for four guest couples. Perhaps chartering such a yacht to cruise Saint Paul's routes along the coast of Turkey and among Greek Aegean islands. While you holiday. Or to cruise Cleopatra's honeymoon route along the coast of Turkey and among Aegean islands of Greece. While you celebrate your own honeymoon. Yes, cruise the crossroads of history while you holiday or honeymoon aboard a crewed charter catamaran, while you cruise leisurely from one idyllic locale to another idyllic locale with family or friends; or without family or friends. Or charter such a crewed catamaran to cruise further into Greece. To sugar-cube encrusted Cyclades islands of the central Aegean. Or charter a catamaran cruising further along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey from one white-sand beach to the next white-sand beach, all the way to Andriake where Saint Paul trans-shipped a prisoner en route to Rome. Or further along the crossroads of history to ancient Cilicia and Phoenicia where Cyrus II first organized a Persian navy. That's him at the left. Cyrus II. Are you wondering why a Persian deserves mention on a web page dealing with Turkey and Greece? Well, it's a long his-story, but we'll squeeze it into this paragraph. The his-story began when King Croesus of Lydia in west-central Anatolia got too ambitious. That's the Croesus in "rich as Croesus," the Croesus who invented money. In the middle of the 6th century BC Croesus ruled not only Lydia but also the Greek city-states which lined the Aegean coast of what is now Turkey, all of which paid Croesus tribute. But, it seems, not enough tribute. To supplement his Greek income Croesus decided to annex the ancient Kingdom of Cappadocia on his eastern border, a kingdom paying its tribute to Cyrus II, King of Persia, the King of Persia who in 539 BC said to Israelites hostage in Babylon, Go free, return to Jerusalem. End of his-story? Not quite. This his-story deals with Turkey and Greece, not Babylon and Jerusalem. It was eight years earlier that Croesus put his left foot down in Cappadochia, a left foot accompanied by tested Lydian cavalry and crack Greek infantry from those Aegean city states. Apparently forewarned, however, Cyrus sped 1200 miles across the Tigris and Euphrates and through Taurus mountain passes to confront Croesus with a larger force of Medes and Persians, mounted and on foot, carrying bows and short swords. The first encounter was indecisive, ending at nightfall. The following day, feeling Cyrus checked and his own force too small to take the offensive, Croesus withdrew to gather reinforcements and fight another year. Not checked at all, Cyrus followed discreetly, all the way to the Lydian capital at Sardis where Croesus was demobilizing for winter. To save money! Demobilized Sardis fell in short order. The Greek city states meanwhile hearing footfalls sought aid from Sparta. Sparta dispatched an ambassador to Sardis to warn Cyrus that Sparta would not tolerate Persian subjugation of Greek city states. Cyrus had never heard of Sparta, but he was quite irritated with the Greek city states. He promptly dispatched

a force under his Medean general Mazares, and the city states fell one by one all the way to Priene in Caria. There Mazares fell ill and died, only to be replaced by another Medean. Harpagus was his name. Halicarnassus, modern Bodrum, soon fell to Harpagus. So, too, did Knidos and Caunos. All three in Caria. Then in 545 BC Harpagus besieged and took Xanthos in Lycia; the last independent enclave in Anatolia had succumbed to Persian rule. And so the consequence of Croesus's left foot: Anatolia was to remain Persian until the coming of Alexander 211 years later. By then Cyrus, ruler of an empire stretching from the Aegean to India, had been called "The Great" for two centuries. Not for his quick subjugation of Lydia and its allies, but for liberating the Israelites and for benign rule throughout his empire. So begin your holiday at the crossroads of history in the Halicarnassus which fell to Harpagus. Modern Bodrum. Or in Gocek, ancient Callimache, which Harpagus ignored on his way to Xanthos. Are you searching for Gocek in Turkey? Well, it's 42 nautical miles ENE of Rhodes Town in Greece and 15 road miles from its own international airport at Dalaman. There or in Bodrum or elsewhere we can put you aboard a crewed catamaran for the holiday cruise of a lifetime. We can put you aboard a catamaran with an experienced crew able to show you flat sailing waters of the Gulf of Gocek, able to show you Saint Paul's route up the coasts of Lycia and Caria and among Scattered Islands while a prisoner, able to show you his earlier track down the west coast of Turkey and among Greek islands returning from his third mission, able to show you Cleopatra's honeymoon route from Perge to Ephesus, and able to show you tracks of Cilician and Phoenician galleys supporting Mazares and Harpagus, tracks running from Phocaea to Patara.
