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 bareboat cruising in Turkey and Greece may be obtained by clicking on the maroon links immediately above. Thank You. Could you be surfing the internet in search of information concerning Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra? The most prominent name in Spanish letters? Or for Don Quixote de La Mancha? Cervantes' knight errant? Or errant knight? Or for Sancho Panza, Quixote's alter ego? Or could you be searching for an oared galley cruising Greece as did Cervantes' La Marchesa? We ask because in January 2016 both Google and Yahoo have this page number one when searching either with the term Cervantes cruising Greece or with the term Cervantes cruising Turkey. Or are you merely searching for a fast yacht cruising Turkey and Greece as did Cervantes? Perhaps for an ultra-fast Jeanneau 53 bareboat cruising both Turkey and Greece? Well, you've hit the jackpot! This web page deals with all of these matters, most importantly with bareboat cruising in Turkey and Greece, with fast cruising along the cove-indented, pine-clad, coast of Turkey, and with idling on an azure sea among remote Aegean islands of Greece. But this web page also deals with cruising the crossroads of history, for it was here that history was invented, here on the coast of Asia Minor, at Halicarnassus, that Herodotus wrote the first history text entitled Histories, and here that much of history played out. Could you be thinking of bareboat cruising at the crossroads of history? In Turkish waters? Of a charter Bareboat Cruising Greeceyacht cruising between isolated pine-fringed coves along the Turquoise Coast of Turkey? Or are you dreaming of a charter yacht cruising Greece? Of sailing among Greek islands blue and white under climbing bougainvillea? Or all of the above? How about doing some or all of the above aboard a charter yacht with accommodations for four guest couples and two crew. Or with accommodations for five guest couples and no crew. Perhaps chartering such a yacht to cruise Cervantes routes along the coast of Greece and among Greek islands. While you holiday. While you cruise to Lepanto, now known as Navpaktos, where in 1571 the Holy League fleet of Don Juan of Austria came up against the Ottoman fleet of Muezzinzade Ali Pasa in the bloodiest of all naval engagements. Ever! In this tragic contest both fleets were largely comprised of oared war galleys, most about 137 feet in length and displacing about 140 tons. These were galleys packed not so much with artillery as with soldiers and marines and, at two-thirds, with oarsmen, Christian oarsmen on the Ottoman side chained to their benches, Christian convicts on the Holy League side promised their freedom in return for combat. What has this to do with Cervantes, you ask! Plenty! One of these galleys was La Marchesa, the personal property of Gian Andrea Doria, great-nephew of the famous Andrea Doria, and on board was Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. Born in 1547, Cervantes had fled his native Spain following a street brawl in which one of the participants had been killed. Arriving in Spanish Naples at the age of 22 Cervantes soon enlisted in a local detachment of marines which in 1571 was assigned to Doria's La Marchesa. Doria commanded the Spanish contingent in the Holy League fleet and brought with him his own galley squadron. La Marchesa was assigned to the Holy League left wing as the two fleets collided, a left wing very nearly enveloped by the Turkish right under Mehmet Scirocco. The fighting was hand-to-hand and furious. Seriously ill at the time, Cervantes rose from his sick bed to command the detachment of marines and unchained oarsmen fighting in the ship's waist. While the sea ran red with blood, Cervantes took two arquebus rounds in his chest and a third in his left hand, crippled for life, but held his post. He survived this the most deadly naval battle in history, and unchained Christian convicts may have swung the tide. Yes, cruise the crossroads of history aboard a Jeanneau 53. Cruise leisurely from one idyllic locale to another idyllic locale while you holiday with friends. Cruise all the way to Navpaktos where analysts are still trying to determine who gained what in 1571, if anything. Take with you a copy of Don Quixote de La Mancha, the Man of La Mancha. Look for references to the futility of war and the demise of chivalry. Let literature enlighten history. Contact Charter Yachts Turkey today at
