SunOdyssey Sailing Turkey

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 four-cbin bareboats sailing Greece and Turkey may be obtained by clicking on the maroon links immediately above. Thank You. You must be searching for a four-cabin bareboat sailing Greece or Turkey. How else could you have found this web page! You may be considering a holiday in the eastern Mediterranean, and you may be wondering what sort of yachts are available. Among others, Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 49i's are fast, easy to handle, and accommodate four couples in comfort. You may be thinking of a holiday sailing the coast of Turkey, its Turquoise Coast with a near-infinite number of pine-clad coves and seemingly endless archaeological reminders of ancient history. Turkey is hard to beat. And the cuisine! Sixty-four different entrees based on aubergine alone. In Turkish that's sixty-four different mezes based on patlican alone. And that's just for starters. Or is it Aegean Greece you have in mind? Pastel-hued Dodecanese islands and blue-on-white Cyclades islands. And the octopus! Always superb, boiled and marinated in vinegar it is even better! And there is plenty of history to be found among the islands, as well. History such as that made by Honore de Hocquincourt, an accomplished sea captain cruising among these same islands in the 1660's, cruising with letters of marque first from the Knights of Malta and then from the Republic of Venice. Hocquincourt was one of eight children born to an old and distinguished family of Picardie in that part of France bordering on the English Channel, his father Charles a Marshall of France under Louis XIV, his mother Eleonore from an equally distinguished family of Valencay. Like many junior offspring of distinguished families, Honore de Hocquincourt did not succeed to titles and property but rather was left to fend for himself. He turned to the sea, and is described in the History of the French Navy as of ordinary stature, eloquent without affectation, generous without excess, at ease with everyone, of marvelous virtue, and valiant without hesitation. At the age of sixteen in the year 1658 he was accepted as a Knight of Malta, and in 1660 equipped and commanded a 36-gun frigate such as that depicted below, a square-rigged sailing warship only then coming into its own in a Mediterranean theretofore dominated by oared galleys. Obtaining that year a privateer letter of marque SunOdyssey Sailing Greecefrom the Hospitallers, another of whom was his brother Dominique, he set about disrupting Ottoman commerce in the Aegean and Ionian Seas. Over the next several years he came out on top following a succession of engagements with Ottoman corsairs off the islands of Zakinthos, Sifnos, and Chios, among others, most of these engagements in the company of fellow-privateer and dear friend Anne-Hilarion de Tourville. He obtained much of his renown in November 1665, though, when he, Tourville, and a third privateer were caught in a dead calm off Candia (Crete) by 34 galleys under the command of Ottoman Admiral Mehmet Ali Pasha. In spite of the advantage of numbers and maneuverability, the Ottomans were decisively defeated and driven from the field. Hocquincourt's frigate alone took 150 cannon ball hits and was rammed in the poop before the engagement ended in victory. Returning to Malta for battle repairs, however, Hocquincourt and his fellow captains found themselves less than welcome; envy at their youth and success, one report has it. In consequence he and Tourville made their way to Venice where their reputations had preceded them. There in 1666 they obtained Venetian letters of marque and continued as before, the two of them in November, almost 12 months to the day following their first great victory, engaging off the southern Peloponnesus 26 Ottoman war galleys, sinking some and putting the rest to flight. A grateful Doge Domenico Contarini in 1667 offered both Hocquincourt and Tourville elevation to the Republic's Maggior Consiglio or Great Council. Neither accepted. Tourville returned to France and greater glory. A mere 25 years of age, Hocquincourt went down with his ship that same year between the Dodecanese islands of Karpathos and Kasos, SunOdyssey 49i Cruising Greece blown onto a shoal by a storm. Could you be considering a four-cabin bareboat SunOdyssey sailing yacht in which to cruise these crossroads of history? Could you be dreaming of a bareboat charter in Greece? Of sailing from one remote island town climbing steep harbor slopes to the next remote island town dining on the catch of dozens of brightly painted caiques with fish net piled high fore and aft?
