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 bare boat (bareboat) sailing in Greece and Turkey may be obtained by clicking on the blue links immediately above. Thank You. A memorable bare boat charter holiday in Turkey and Greece. An unforgettable honeymoon cruising the Turquoise Coast of Turkey and among Aegean islands of Greece. Begin your bare boat or bareboat holiday or honeymoon sailing a bare boat or bareboat from Gocek or Marmaris or Bodrum in Turkey and sail under a gentle sun along the Turquoise Coast to Kos and Rhodes and other Greek islands. Sail waters steeped in history. Sail the crossroads of history. Sail waters once patrolled by red-hulled black-prowed galleys of the Hospitaller Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem also known as the Knights of Rhodes and, later in history, as the Knights of Malta. Sail from Gocek or Marmaris out into the Rhodes Channel across which the war galleys and troop transports of Suleiman The Magnificent proceeded to the siege of Rhodes. Sail the channel between Rhodes and mainland Turkey once sailed by Bernardino Piossasco d'Airasca, a bilingual Knight of Rhodes from the Piemontese Alpine region between Italy and France. And an able seaman. Assigned in 1503 as commander of the Knights garrison on the Greek island of Kos, for the ensuing two years he regularly plied the sea lane between Kos and Rhodes, familiarizing himself with local winds and safe havens such as Knidos and Simi, Loryma Bare Boat Sailing Turkeyand Serce, lying between the two. Later promoted to command of the Knights galley flotilla which for two hundred years had spread fear along the opposite coast, he learned of the Spring 1522 build-up of shipping in Marmaris Bay 25 nautical miles to the north of Rhodes and took reports of the imminent arrival there of the Ottoman sultan, even learning details of the construction in Marmaris of a walled fortress preserved today. Hundreds of ships coming down local ways, it was reported. War galleys and troop transports to carry regiments of janissaries and mounted spahis, sappers and siege cannon. Tens of thousands. Perhaps a hundred thousand, all with logistics support. There were reports of the presence of Ottoman corsairs conscripted for service to the state, corsairs such as Murat Reis and Kurtoglu (Son of the Wolf) Muslihiddin Reis and, some reports had it, of Barbarossa himself. Surveying his own armada at Rhodes Town harbor Airasca must have been not a little dismayed. Four war galleys belonging to the Order and several others belonging to Latin corsairs. Seven against half a thousand! Airasca ordered the harbor chain raised and locked after exiting. He saved his small flotilla and perhaps forty other small craft from certain destruction by relocating them to the Castle of Saint Peter at Petronium where he became the castle's last Hospitaller commander. A magnanimous Suleiman recognizing six months of siege bravery on the part of 5,000 decimated defenders at Rhodes permitted survivors including garrisons at Kos and Petronium to sail on 1 January 1523 to their freedom. Accompanying fewer than two hundred knights and 800 other defenders were 4,000 Rhodians, some Greek, mostly Latin. It being mid-winter, Airasca led his separate flotilla first to Iraklion in Crete for rendezvous with evacuees from Rhodes, and, during the following summer, on to Civitavecchia in Italy. To Suleiman's later regret, each of the Knights galleys lived to fight another day. Isn't this the sort of background to a bare boat (bareboat) family holiday at the crossroads of history in which you are interested? Well, there's more where that came from. Much more. Please remember, too, that bare boats come in a multitude of designs, some new, some old, and some in between, some exquisitely maintained ("selects," the ancients termed them) and some ignored, some priced fairly and some not. To charter the boat meeting your criteria, you need an advocate of your interests, at the scene, making an inspected selection.
