The Aegean Yacht Rally draws to a close with the last race on Marmaris

The Aegean Yacht Rally draws to a close with the last race on Marmaris Harbour in 12 knots of breeze.

This annual event organised by Mariner Boating Holidays consists of six fun races in fourteen days conducted on a route which showcases five Greek islands and the Turkish coast between Bodrum and Marmaris.

The rally focuses more on history, culture and fun and the races are non-spinnaker and simply designed to add interest to the passage between the stops on the itinerary. It attracts cruisers, non-sailors and racers who want to explore sailing in new destinations.

This year we attracted a casual entry when we encountered a group of German sailors who joined our crews in two of the passage races.

After each passage race we enjoy a dinner together ashore at a local restaurant with pre-arranged berthing.

The event will take place again in May 2012 and details are available on the website.

Mariner Boating Holidays organises seven or eight escorted rallies each year in different destinations – the next one this year is in Croatia and will feature a one design fleet of Beneteau First 45s.
