Multi-coloured sailboats set out to sea, while the mild autumn
sun warms our bones...
Wait, sea, I am on my way. Send word to Bodrum,
to the boats, that they should wait. The weather
should be windy, to fill the sails. We will continue
our adventure from where we left off. Follow me,
if you are in love with the sea, the blue, sailing
boats and Bodrum. I am going for unlimited pleasure
and excitement. The 15th Bodrum International Wooden
Sailboat Race, which takes place every year during
the third week of October, will begin this year
on 18th October with an introduction to the races,
followed on the next five days by the races themselves.
On the morning of 19th October, the wooden yachts
will set sail from Bodrum Karada Marina and race
to the first harbour, Turgutreis. The next day,
the Gulf of Gökova will be sailed from beginning
to end and the boats will anchor at Mersincik. After
spending nights at Alakisla and Bitez, the winner
will be determined by the time the yachts drop their
anchors at Bodrum harbour on the evening of 23.
